Gandhi's ashes scattered at sea
Those attending the ceremony called for Indians to unite

Ashes of Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi have been scattered off the coast of Mumbai to mark the 60th anniversary of his assassination.

An urn containing the ashes was opened and they were mixed with water from the Arabian Sea by his great-granddaughter Nilamben Parikh.

The ceremony was in accordance with Hindu rites.

Gandhi - called Mahatma or "Great Soul" - spearheaded a non-violent campaign against the British Raj.

It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.
