Revisiting 26/11: Ajmal Kasab's confession
Tukaram Omble AC was an assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of the Mumbai Police, and a retired army soldier. He was killed in action while fighting terrorists during the 2008 Mumbai attacks, at Girgaum Chowpatty Mumbai, and was instrumental in apprehending Pakistan national Ajmal Kasab alive. The lone surviving terrorist Kasab was later convicted and hanged. The Indian government posthumously honoured Omble, on 26 January 2009, with the Ashoka Chakra – the country's highest peace-time gallantry award for extraordinary bravery and valour in the line of duty.
