Mumbai: Tukaram Omble was the biggest hero of 26/11. The Mumbai police assistant sub-inspector was responsible for the capture of LeT terrorist Ajmal Kasab alive. His brother Eknath Omble welcomed the government decision to hang kasab, saying a terrorist like him should have been hanged in public.
"My family is happy. Through you I had appealed to President Pranab Mukherjee. I am glad that today the President and the Home minister took the right decision. A terrorist like Kasab should have been hanged in public," he said.
The Maharashtra Home Ministry on Wednesday confirmed that 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks convict Ajmal Kasab was hanged at 7.30 am at Pune's Yerwada jail. President Pranab Mukherjee had rejected his mercy plea on November 8, said Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil.
