Honouring a hero

Constable Tukaram Ombale- The man who caught the Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab alive.
Mumbai: Late in the night of 26/11, 2008, Constable Tukaram Ombale caught up with the police car that Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab and his fellow terrorist Ismail had hijacked after shooting 3 senior cops and a killng spree at the CST train station.
Mr Ombale was unarmed, but he grappled with Kasab and held onto his rifle allowing others to arrest him. Kasab fired several rounds before his arrest and the constable died of bullet wounds.
Ajmal Kasab was the only terrorist caught alive; 10 men had sailed from Pakistan and entered Mumbai to attack predetermined targets. Heavily armed, they ran rampage through Mumbai over three days, killing 166 people. Many we knew closely. 52 people and wounding more than 100. The police car they escaped in had a flat tyre in Girgaum Chowpatty when Mr Ombale caught up with them. He was awarded an Ashoka Chakra psothumously for his valour.
A statue at the spot where he caught the terrorists and was shot has his statue now.
Cool picture.
