Guess how much India is spending on keeping the sole surviving 26/11 Pakistani terrorist alive and healthy in prison? Over Rs 30 crore 


Maharashtra govt has so far spent a staggering Rs 31 crore to keep 26/11 attacker Ajmal Kasab safe and secure enough to stand trial.


As India observes the first anniversary of the terror attack on Mumbai, the cash-strapped Democratic Front government in Maharashtra has so far spent a staggering Rs 31 crore, or nearly Rs 8.5 lakh per day, to keep the 21-year-old terrorist from the Pakistani town of Faridkot safe and secure enough to stand trial.

Shame. For small reasons police do encounters. Why Government is safegaurding a terrorist for a long time. Terrorist is a pakistani. Apply Islamic law for his immediate punishment. No use of keeping him alive in India.

First he learn Marathi, later apply for local certificate, he want to be a Marathi Manoos.

From Mumbai he can contest as future YOUNG leader in Congress party. To under stand problems of his community. Our Government Mr. Chidambaram is there to respect his ideas and help this young boy. Only thing just he migrated a year ago and you know a small mistake he did but that is advantage for him in future political life.

He is also like Late.Sanjay Gandhi.

The money is spending on Ajmal Kasab is public money and tax payers money. Home minister of Maharastra or Union Home Minister is not spending from their pockets. They want to show to the innocent indians themselves very intelligent how they are providing security and how much money is spending on Kasab for learning geography and politics of terrorism.

Our MPs, MLAs and top officials of Government's brains should keep in Museums to show.

Thats one side of the coin. The other side is that it was a major breakthrough in catching him alive. The entire plan was disclosed by him.

The amount spend is not on Kasab but for the trial which is highly sensitive.

By keeping him alive and spending a lot on his trial, India was able to highlight the involvement of Pakistan. Initially Pak refused to have connection with all the terrirists and even disowned Kasab. However later due to this trial only they had to accept that they belonged to Pak.

In my view spending this amount in creating a international pressure on Pak and proving their involvement in attacks is not high.

Our intelligence (CBI / Police dpt.) officers can catch any type of criminal in short period. We should n't under estimate our CBI or Bombay police. They will get truth (whole information)from the caught criminal in weeks.

keeping in the jail, spending that much of huge amount for safe gaurding him, media propaganda all will help other side people to think or deny the truth.

A terrorist shouldn't live long time when caught. Our courts should punish them in a span of 90 days by completing whole inquiry.
