MUMBAI, April 6 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
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]
The rampage in India's financial centre killed 166 people
and derailed a peace dialogue between India and Pakistan.
