While Prime Minister Narendra Modi posted l offered prayers, external affairs minister S Jaishankar said the minds behind these attacks still need a lesson to be taught and punishing those perpetrators is still pending at our end.

While speaking to the news agency ANI, he said, “Today is the anniversary of the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai. Even after so many years, the people who planned & oversaw it have not been punished. They have not been brought to justice. This is something which we give utmost importance to.”

He also emphasised that Indian government is committed to “complete the process of justice”.

He further added, “Working with many other countries (whose citizens) also lost lives to make sure that real perpetrators don’t escape justice. It’s an occasion that the entire country remembers it. I want to underline how strongly we feel about determining where to complete the process of justice.”
