August 11, 2009 01:30 IST

The Mumbai police on Monday suggested that the bodies of the nine terrorists killed during the 26/11 attacks may be handed over to Pakistan.

The Crime Branch wrote a letter to the Ministry of Home Affairs in this regard. "We wrote a letter on Monday0 to the government saying that the bodies of nine terrorists may be handed over to Pakistan," Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Rakesh Maria said. The bodies have been lying at the mortuary of J J Hospital in south Mumbai since November.

This is the third letter written by the crime branch to the government in this regard. The lone captured terrorist Ajmal Kasab, who is being tried by a special court, had given correct addresses of only four terrorists, said Maria, who led the investigation of the terror attacks case. Kasab had given correct addresses of Abu Ismail, who accompanied him at the attack on Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station and Abu Aksa and Abu Umar, who carried out attacks at Nariman House and Bada Abdul Rehman, who was killed at the Taj Mahal hotel. The other deceased terrorists are Abu Ali, Chhota Abdul Rehman, Afadulla, Syed Abu Umer.
