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.
