Muammar Gaddafi is dead, Libya’s new leaders said, killed by fighters who overran his home town and final bastion on today. His bloodied body was stripped and displayed around the world from cellphone video. See the video below:
India has been scaling up its relations with Libya over the years, largely driven by energy interests, but its long-standing ruler Muammar Gaddafi, was no great friend of New Delhi.
In fact, under his regime India and Libya have been at best distant neighbors. Gaddafi was perceived here to be a friend of Pakistan who benefited from the A.Q Khan illicit nuclear smuggling network and one who raked up the Kashmir issue in the UN General Assembly two years ago.
Drag him through the street!!
