Mumbai police may put 26/11 trial evidence on display

May 07, 2010 17:53 IST

If Mumbai Police has its way, the materials used as evidence during the 26/11 terror attacks trial would be kept on display in a museum.

There are plans to showcase some of the articles used by the terrorists in the Police Museum inside the premises of City Police Headquarters in south Mumbai, Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Himanshu Roy told PTI.

If decided, necessary permission for doing so would be sought, he said. According to the police, the move would remind them of the courage of their colleagues, who fought the terrorists on November 26, 2008.

Police sources said the materials include AK 47 rifles, pistols, GPS devices, Nokia mobile handsets, satellite phones, blankets, towels, jackets, haver sacks, head phones, water bottles, dinghy, Yamaha engine, toothbrushes, detergent powder and tissue papers.

The museum provides a fascinating insight into the history of the Mumbai Police. Besides original firearms and uniforms used by the City Police, it also testifies the evolution of the force.

Meanwhile, discussion to dispose of 24 kgs of RDX recovered from the target spots of the terror attack is on, sources added.

Bringing the curtains down on one of the fastest trials in a terror case, Pakistani gunman Ajmal Amir Kasab was on Thursday sentenced to death for the 26/11 Mumbai attacks in which 166 people were killed.
