New Delhi, May 6 (IANS) Justice has arrived at a ‘most appropriate conclusion’, External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said Thursday after the death sentence to Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone gunman captured alive during the Mumbai terror attack.

‘I think justice has come to a most appropriate conclusion. It’s transparent,’ he told reporters outside parliament. ‘We have to certainly teach people who engage in these activities.

‘The number of other accused who are involved and other co-conspirators who were involved in this case should be brought into justice,’ he said.

Kasab was given the death sentence by a special court in Mumbai Thursday. He was also awarded life term on five counts of the total 86 charges.

The Pakistani was convicted Monday on 86 counts, including waging war on the state. Twenty other Pakistanis, including Lashkar-e-Taiba leaders Hafez Saeed, Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and Abu Hamza, were also convicted for their involvement.
