Five-member Interpol team visits Mumbai

December 22, 2008 23:20 IST

A five-member team of the Interpol met Mumbai Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Rakesh Maria [Images]  on Monday and sought details of Ajmal Amir Kasab [Images], the lone terrorist captured alive during the November 26 terror strikes.

The team, which had come with Interpol Secretary General Ronald K Noble, flew directly to Mumbai even as its chief was busy meeting Union Home Minister P Chidambaram and Central Bureau of Investigation director, Ashwini Kumar.

Sources said the Interpol delegation had also interacted with the Federal Bureau of Investigation team which is already in the city as part of the investigations to unravel the terror plot. Earlier, during his meeting with Chidamabarm, Noble said the details of the terrorists who were killed or captured, including their names, fingerprints, DNA profiles and photographs, were compared with Interpol's global databases and appropriately disseminated to each and every one of its 186-member countries.

Interpol had also offered to issue Black Notices (for deceased persons) and Blue Notices (to obtain additional information) for the 10 terrorists involved in the attacks. These notices will allow investigators to seek formal and structured assistance from Interpol member countries.
