Teroris Mumbai bukan hanya sakaw dulu sebelum menembak, tapi juga merampas 
kartu kredit dan duit dari sandera. Rupanya mereka diajar bahwa semua yang 
tadinya haram jadi halal jika berjihad demi Allah. Astagfirullah! Inikah dia 
mujahiddin Islam yang begitu dimuliakan perjuangannya?
 
NEW DELHI (Reuters) – The militants who attacked India's financial center last 
month, killing 179 people, also stole credit cards, money and mobile telephones 
from their victims, Mumbai's top police officer said on Monday.
The stolen goods and currency included thousands of rupees and dollars found on 
the bodies of the nine gunmen killed by police during the three-day siege in 
Mumbai. A 10th gunmen survived and was captured by police.
"We have no idea what they were planning to do with the money and cards, but it 
just speaks a lot more about their evil nature and the fact that criminals love 
stealing money and cards," Mumbai Police Commissioner Hasan Gafoor told Reuters.
The attack has soured relations between uneasy nuclear-armed neighbors India 
and Pakistan.
India has blamed the banned Pakistan-based group Lashkar-e-Taiba for the 
attacks and called on Islamabad to do more to stamp out groups that operate 
from its soil.
The gunmen took scores of guests hostage and battled commandos inside two 
luxury Mumbai hotels.
"They took quite a few credit cards and a lot of money," Gafoor said by 
telephone.
"Since they are all dead, we can only presume that they liked the more colorful 
(credit cards) and took them," he said.
The 10th gunman, identified as Pakistani Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, told police he 
had lived a life of petty crime before coming in contact with Lashkar-e-Taiba 
in the city of Rawalpindi, according to media reports of his statement to 
police.
Kasab was captured before reaching either of the hotels.
The gunmen also took mobile phones from hostages. Some of them then used the 
phones to call an Indian television channel and to speak with their bosses in 
Pakistan, police said.
Security experts said the gunmen had criminal backgrounds.
"They all belong to ordinary families and they were out of there early to make 
quick money until they got indoctrinated into jihadi activities," said security 
expert Major General Ashok Mehta.
The gunmen also set off bombs inside the two hotels, causing significant damage.
The 105-year-old Taj Mahal hotel will reopen this week, its owner has said. The 
hotel has set up a welfare trust for victims.
