Tribune News Service

Mumbai, May 8
Police sub-inspector Bhaskar Kadam, the first witness to be examined in the Mumbai terror attacks, today identified Mohammad Ajmal Amir Iman, alias Kasab, as the gunman who killed his colleague assistant sub-inspector Tukaram Omble. Kadam along with Omble were among the police officers who were tasked with catching the terrorists. Kadam told the court that he was on duty on the night of November 26 when they were asked to intercept two terrorists moving about in a Skoda car. After the police team blocked the roads, they saw a car appearing at a high speed. When asked to stop, the occupants tried to take a U-turn and hit the divider, Kadam deposed.

Kadam recollected how the police party approached the Skoda and asked the terrorists to surrender. The two terrorists put their hands up and as the cops approached them Kasab and his accomplice Abu Ismail opened fire. Kadam said he fired at Abu Ismail in self-defense injuring him.

Kasab opened the door on his side and fell down pretending to be injured. I saw Kasab fire at Omble with an AK-47 rifle as he and assistant police inspector Sanjay Govilkar approached him, Kadam said. Despite being hit, Omble pounced on Kasab and held on to his weapon allowing the other policemen to disarm the terrorist.
