Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan and Home Minister R R Patil today paid tributes to martyrs at a Police Memorial here on the fifth anniversary of the Mumbai terror attacks.
Chavan and Patil paid homage to the heroes at the Police Gymkhana in Marine Lines, where a 26/11 memorial has been erected in remembrance of the policemen, who lost their lives fighting terrorists.
Mumbai Police Commissioner Satyapal Singh and family members of victims and brave-hearts, also paid floral tributes to those killed in the November 26, 2008, siege.
Lone surviving Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab, who was nabbed after the carnage, was hanged in Pune’s Yerawada Jail on November 21 last year.
Five years ago, 10 LeT terrorists launched coordinated attacks across key locations in the country’s financial capital killing 166 people, including policeman, NSG commandos and some foreigners.
In addition, nine terrorists were killed and Kasab was captured.
India has been demanding that the perpetrators of the Mumbai carnage should be brought to justice and Pakistan should swiftly conclude the 26/11 trial of the accused.
