Mumbai, Nov 27 (UNI) The eyewitnesses to the terror attacks at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) in South Mumbai last night may never be able to forget the incident in their lives.

Avbindu Chatarjee, who lost his mother in the firing at the CST, said he was leaving for his native place at Kolkata, along with his family. At about 1600 hours, he dropped his family members at CST from Nallasopara and then returned to Nallasopara to bring some other goods which they had to carry.

His wife Sunita and mother Meera were sitting at the CST station, when all of a sudden, terrorists opened fire and one of the bullets hit his mother, who died on the spot. His wife, however, escaped unhurt.

Another eyewitness Shadab Qureshi, hailing from Bhendi Bazar area, lost his six-year-old daughter. He was waiting at the station to board a train to Aurangabad. The girl was hungry and had asked for some food, which Qureshi had gone to buy. When he came back, he saw that the girl was lying in a pool of blood and his wife had suffered leg injuries and was admitted to St George hospital.
