Mumbai, May 27(ANI): Arrested Pakistani gunman Mohammed Ajmal Kasab was identified by an eyewitness in a special court as one of the ten gunmen who arrived by boat at Mumbai’s shores on the night of November 26.

Bharat Tamore, a foreman with Hotel Taj, claims to have seen Kasab and others getting off a boat at the Fishermen’s Colony in south Mumbai when he was going for his duty at around 2115 hours.

This witness is considered crucial by the prosecution as he is the first independent eyewitness, a civilian. He further added that of the ten persons who came by the boat, eight alighted and started walking away while the remaining two sailed off towards the nearby Nairman Point.

The persons were all in the age group of 20 to 25 years and were wearing orange life-jackets. The witness said he had identified Kasab in an earlier identification parade in Arthur Road Jail conducted by police. (ANI)
