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
the assault.

"Rukhsana shared her condolences with Moshe`s
grandparents and paid tribute to the six persons, who fell
victim to the bullets of the terrorists, by lighting a candle
in the prayer hall of the Nariman House," Bitta told reporters
outside the building in South Mumbai.

Nariman House, also known as the Chabad House, was one
of the sites that were attacked on November 26 last year along
with Hotels Taj and Trident, Café Leopold and Chhatrapati
Shivaji Terminus.

Rukhsana came to limelight after she attacked three
LeT militants, who had forcibly entered her house in Rajouri
district, killing one and injuring another in September.

Rukhsana, who was hiding under the bed, hit one of
the terrorists with an axe and as he collapsed, she snatched
his AK-47 rifle and shot him dead.
