Taliban demand India return Mumbai gunman's body

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — The Taliban are threatening revenge unless India returns the body of a Pakistani man executed for his role in the 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people.

The Pakistani Taliban spokesman, Ahsanullah Ahsan, told The Associated Press today that the body of Mohammed Ajmal Kasab must be given back to his family or handed over to the Taliban.

India secretly executed Kasab on Wednesday and buried his body at the jail where he was killed. He was the lone surviving gunman from the three-day attack in Mumbai. The other nine attackers were killed during the siege.

Kasab confessed that the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba was behind the attack.

Indian officials accuse Pakistan's intelligence agency of working with Lashkar-e-Taiba to plan the attack — an allegation Islamabad denies.
