This story is all about a girl who decided to give evidence against Ajmal Kasab, the only Lashkar-e-Taiba who was caught alive after 26/11 attacks in Mumbai.
She had faced a lot of hurdles when she decided to give evidence, she told that she was called Kasab ki beti in school and lost her friends.
On that day Devika and her father Natwarlal and brother were going to Pune to meet her elder brother.
They were waiting at the CST station she heard sounds similar to crackers bursting. She recalled had gone to the washroom and Natwarlal told her to run.
"I felt shooting pain. I had been shot in the right leg." When asked her that who shoots her then she pointed her finger towards Kasab.
For two months she was in the hospital on undergoing treatment and her father don't want her to give any evidence to court about Kasab.
Ujjwal Nikam (public prospector) told her that she would have to face that person who tried to kill her.
"When I was asked to tell the court who shot me I raised my finger and pointed towards Kasab who stood there expressionless."
When she backed to school her classmate and friends distanced them from her "I was called Kasab ki beti" I used to run at home crying because my friends tease me and did not want play with me.
She moved to another school but for her, it was too tough to adjust there also.
Her family was very much in fear of terrorist. Her father told that they were not intimidated. The relatives and neighbors also started acting frosty fearing for them.
Devika said that the appreciation did not help them. The family has not got the promised house either.
She stays in 12 feet by 12 feet room with her father and brother in Bandra. Her father works as a daily wage labor.
But Devika is not letting her hopes die. She dreams of becoming an IPS officer, to fight terrorism and bring justice to those who have suffered.
