Mumbai, Dec. 3 : A Mumbai terrorist captured by police has confirmed to interrogators that a woman in Islamic dress guided him around the city before and after the attackers went on a shooting spree. Investigators said that an urgent alert had been issued to officers to find the woman referred to by Azam Amir Qasab as "sister."
Eyewitnesses had seen Qasab buying dried fruit with the burqa-wearing woman near Mumbai's main train just minutes before the attack was launched.
A shopkeeper also insisted at least one woman had accompanied the pair.
"The man started firing towards the hospital immediately after entering," said one eyewitness.
