NEW DELHI: A senior judge of the
Supreme Court on Tuesday likened terrorists killing innocent people to “animals”
and said they cannot be allowed to take benefit of human rights.

“Those who violate the rights of society and have no respect for
human rights cannot be a human,” Justice Arijit Pasayat said at a seminar on
terrorism here.

“We should not talk about human rights violation of
terrorists because terrorists are the people who kill innocent people with AK-47
and AK-56,” he said, adding that “those who killed innocent people by no stretch
of imagination are human beings. They are worth not more than animals.”

Pasayat stressed the need for effective implementation of the new
terror law and said that “investigators and prosecutors should be trained
properly in this regard”.

He said cases relating to terror attacks
should be taken on priority basis as “it is the object of the Act”.

Solicitor General G E Vahanvati while referring to the November 26
terror attacks in Mumbai said as a lawyer it would have been difficult for him
to defend lone surviving terrorist Amir Ajmal Kasab.

“If I would
have been asked to defend Kasab, probably I would have refused,” Vahanvati, who
hails from Mumbai, said.

The solicitor general said he could not
defend a person against his conviction.

“If I go and defend a person
against my conviction it would be unfair,” he said.
