Bodies of nine Mumbai gunmen buried secretly in Jan

MUMBAI, April 6 Tue Apr 6, 2010 10:26pm IST

MUMBAI, April 6 (Reuters) - The bodies of nine of the 10 Pakistani gunmen from the 2008 Mumbai attack were buried in a secret location in January, a top state official said on Tuesday.

The badly decomposed bodies had been lying in the mortuary of a hospital in Mumbai after Muslim clerics in the city refused to let them be buried on their grounds.

Maharashtra state home minister R.R. Patil told the state assembly on Tuesday the bodies were buried secretly in January.

The trial of the suspected lone surviving Pakistani gunman ended last week in Mumbai, with a verdict scheduled to be announced on May 3. [ID:nSGE62UOJS]
