The events around the Mumbai 26/11 attack were raked up following the revelations made by lead investigator and former Mumbai police commissioner Rakesh Maria.
Maria, who led the probe into the attack in his book, “Let Me Say it Now”, spoke about how attempts were made to pass of the entire attack as a doing of the Hindus. He also said that had Ajmal Kasab not been caught, then he would have lived as Samir Choudhary.

CBI sources tell rediff.com that the matter will be looked into and probed. We do not know if the allegations are true or false, but we will investigate the matter and put out a report.
