Terror attack witness missing

One of the witnesses in the Mumbai Terror attacks case, who saw the terrorists land on the city’s shores, has gone missing, police said on Tuesday.
Anita Uddaiya, who saw the ten terrorists arrive at Fisherman’s Colony in Cuffe Parade on November 26, has been missing since January 11. Police said they have launched a manhunt for the missing witness, who had been taken to the J J Hospital earlier to identify bodies of the 9 killed terrorists.
The missing person’s complaint was lodged by Anita’s daughter after she went missing from her house in the Cuffe Parade’s Fisherman’s Colony. Crime Branch of the city police, which is the investigating agency in 26/11 terror attacks, has also launched a probe into the incident.
“We are also probing the disappearance of the lady since she is a witness in the case,” Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Rakesh Maria said.
However, Uddaiya was not a key witness in the trial of arrested terrorist Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, he said.
