"I would request the government not to consider this (hanging of Ajmal Kasab) an end to 26/11, because I don't think 26/11 is ever going to end and Mumbai is ever going to forget and if the government forgets then it becomes our responsibility to not let them forget," said Divya, daughter of police officer, Vijay Salaskar, who was gunned down during the attacks.
Salaskar, chief of Mumbai's Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), Hemant Karkare and another senior police officer Ashok Kamte, were killed during a shootout with militants near the Cama and Albless Hospital.
Hemant Karkare was awarded the Ashok Chakra, India's highest peacetime gallantry award for his bravery during the attacks.
Karkare's wife, Kavita Karkare said that the security in Mumbai was still not efficient and the blasts in the city after the 2008 attacks and in the Pune city were reminders of the evident shortfalls.
"Bomb blasts are still happening. We need evidence that Mumbai is completely secure but that is not the case. Even after 26/11, there have been blasts in Pune, in Zaveri Bazar and Dadar in Mumbai. The security system should be tightened and we are not giving the required attention," said Kavita Karkare.
A bomb blast at the popular German Bakery in the city of Pune killed nine and also wounded 57 in 2010.

India secretly executed the lone surviving gunman Mohammed Ajmal Kasab on Nov. 21, from the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, four years after Pakistani gunmen blazed through India's financial capital, killing 166 people and shattering relations between the nuclear-armed neighbors.
