NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving gunman in the Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people in November, pleaded guilty in a Mumbai court on July 20.

"Yes, he has pleaded guilty in court today for the November attacks during a hearing," said Rakesh Maria, a senior police officer, overseeing the probe into the Mumbai attacks.

Kasab had pleaded not guilty in May to 86 charges against him, including murder and waging war against India.
