NEW DELHI (Reuters) - A militant holed up inside Mumbai’s Oberoi Hotel told India TV on Thursday that seven attackers were holding hostages inside the luxury establishment.

“There are seven of us inside hotel Oberoi,” the man identified as Sahadullah told India TV.

“We want all Mujahideens held in India released and only after that we will release the people.”

“Release all the Mujahideens, and Muslims living in India should not be troubled,” he said.
