Mumbai Terror Lawyer Murdered
Vigilantism in India? Remember, he's defending one of the suspects:
The lawyer for one of the suspects in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack was shot dead Thursday, police and a colleague said. Shahid Azmi was representing Fahim Ansari, an Indian national accused of helping facilitate the attack on India's financial capital in November 2008. A lawyer colleague of Azmi, Rashid Mirza, said unidentified men opened fire on Azmi near his home in suburban Mumbai.Tragic. Even terrorists need lawyers. In an ideal world they'd be given a swift, fair trial. And then shot.
