Mumbai, India (AP) The only surviving gunman from last week's terror attacks in India has reportedly identified two members of a banned Pakistani militant group as the masterminds of the plot.

But there's also evidence an Indian National scouted sites in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, India's top law enforcement official is admitting government “lapses” in last week's Mumbai attacks.

Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram said “there have been lapses” on the government's part in the deadly assaults, and he's seeking to improve the country's security system.

His comments come amid a public uproar over intelligence and security failures in attacks that killed 171 people in India's financial capital.
