How a gallant police officer arrested Kasab

Here is a good illustration of how an ordinary assistant sub-inspector fought against the terrorists and was able to capture ONE out the 10, who is now proving to be the biggest ammunition against the entire lie of Pakistani establishment. Of course, even after Pakistan has been given the letter written for help by one of its own citizens, it has refused it as “ample proof”. This is despite the fact that the guy’s father in their village has already affirmed that Kasab is his son. Ultimately, is it really about proof? Would or rather should India need proof to hurt Pakistan? Shouldn’t it be about the rights of one’s citizens? In Kargil, the Pak Army personnel were killed dressed as terrorists, and were handed over to the Pak authorities… and the country, for which an Army officer gave his life refused to even ACKNOWLEDGE him as their own… forget about ensuring a decent burial and ceremony! What drives an entire establishment to disown and denigrate its own?

Here is the detailed account of how Tukaram Omble helped arrest Kasab:

Omble was asked by his senior officer to take up a position on Marine drive on Wednesday night, as soon as the news of firings at Leopold Café, Oberoi and Taj Hotels came in.

Subsequently, at 12.45 am, Omble got an alert on his walkie-talkie that two terrorists had hijacked a Skoda car and were heading towards Girgaum Chowpatty. Minutes later Omble saw the Skoda drtiving past him. He jumped onto his two- wheeler and chased the terrorist’s car.

A team from the DB Marg police station was busy setting up a naka bandi at the Chowpatty signal. As soon as the car approached the signal the terrorists fired at the police team but had to reduce the speed of the car, thanks to the barricades laid by the police team for naka bandi.

Omble overtook the Skoda and stopped in front of it, forcing the driver of the car to change the direction towards right and hit the divider.

With one terrorist busy controlling the car, Omble sprang on other terrorist, Amir Kasab and caught hold of the barrel of the AK-47 rifle with both hands. In retaliation Kasab pulled the trigger of the gun, whose barrel was pointed towards Omble.

A spray of bullets entered Omble’s stomach and intestines. But the latter held on to the gun until his last breath, stopping Kasab from shooting anyone else.

In next to no time other cops arrived and killed another terrorist, Ismail, pounced on Kasab and captured him.Investigating agencies were successful in gathering lot of information from the sole terrorist who has been arrested. But this was only possible because of Omble’s daredevil move.
