The attacks claimed 166 lives, including 18 security personnel, and left over 300 injured. The terrorists carefully chose public installations frequented by Europeans, Indians, and Jews.  

Nearly four years after the Mumbai terror attack, Ajmal Kasab, the sole surviving Pakistani gunman, was hanged to death at the Yerawada central prison.
