Family members who lost loved ones in the 2008 Mumbai attacks hold a memorial service on the fourth anniversary of the violence. The assault left 166 people dead when Pakistan-based militants rampaged through luxury five star hotels, a main railway station, a popular cafe and a Jewish centre in the city. Pakistani national Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, pictured moving through Mumbai's train station with an AK-47, was the only surviving gunman. He was executed last week on November 21. But the daughter of a police officer gunned down in the assault said his death does not mean full closure. (SOUNDBITE) (English) DAUGHTER OF FORMER SENIOR POLICE OFFICER, DIVYA SAYING: "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." Some on the streets of Mumbai, though, felt justice had been done. (SOUNDBITE) (Hindi) A LOCAL RESIDENT, MANIK BORADE, SAYING: "Kasab's execution has sent out a message that militants should not attack Mumbai again. It has created fear among them, because if they attack again, the government will act promptly." The three days of attacks still cloud relations between nuclear-armed rivals Pakistan and India.
