New Delhi: NSG commandos who fought during the 26/11 Mumbai attack are leading a pitiable life, says anti-corruption crusader Arvind Kejriwal.

"Ajmal Kasab hanged yesterday. But wat abt those NSG commandos who fought that nite and saved India? They r leading a pitiable life (sic)," he said on micro-blogging site Twitter on Thursday.

He said some of the commandos have been sacked without pensions and they have to pay their own medical bills.

"No honors for them," he said.

Kejriwal said one such commando would speak of his plight and that of the others at a news conference on Thursday afternoon.
