India will not be satisfied until Pakistan gives maximum punishment to the perpetrators of 26/11 Mumbai attack, Indian Defence Minister AK Antony said on Monday.
Coastal security was “very weak” before the terrorist attack in Mumbai in 2008 but now it was “vibrant” and “strong”, Antony told reporters on the sidelines of an awards function.
“Before 26/11, coastal security apparatus was very weak but now we have been able to establish a vibrant and strong coastal security,” Antony said.
He said coordination with other stakeholders involved in coastal security has also improved.
Asked about lack of firm action on part of Pakistan against those responsible for the attack that left 166 people dead, Antony said the perpetrators should be brought to book.
“They (Pakistan) should book the culprits and unless they are given maximum punishment, I don’t think our nation will be satisfied,” Antony said.
