Mumbai: Rukhsana Kausar, who shot to fame
after she gunned down a militant in Jammu and Kashmir, today
visited the Nariman House and paid homage to those killed at
the Jewish centre during the 26/11 terror attacks.
The 21-year-old Kashmir girl, accompanied by M S
Bitta, Chairman of the All India Anti-Terrorist Front, also
met the grandparents of Baby Moshe, whose parents, Rabbi
Gavriel Holtzberg and Rivka, were among the six Jews killed in

grandparents and paid tribute to the six persons, who fell
victim to the bullets of the terrorists, by lighting a candle

the terrorists with an axe and as he collapsed, she snatched
his AK-47 rifle and shot him dead.
