The Mumbai police on Monday night submitted a report to the Maharashtra government on the death of Anti-Terrorist Squad chief Hemant Karkare [Images].

In its report, the police states that neither of the four bullets found on Karkare's body were police bullets. The report further suggests that Karkare's death had nothing to do with the Malegaon blast probe, which he was heading prior to his death.

Karkare was killed while fighting two of the ten terrorists, who launched terror strikes on multiple targets on the night of November 26, at Cama Hospital [Images].

Union Minority Affairs Minister A R Antulay [Images] had suggested that Karkare's death might be the handiwork of right-wing extremists, and demanded a probe into the matter. Antulay's comments have kicked up a political storm with the Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party bringing the Parliament to a standstill on Monday while demanding the minister's resignation.
