Mumbai, Nov 28 (UNI) Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today announced a compensation of Rs one crore for security and police personnel, who lost their lives in joint security operations against the militants in south Mumbai.

Speaking to mediapersons here, Mr Modi alleged that Pakistan had facilitated access to the terrorists to use its sea route to reach Mumbai for launching of the attack.

He demanded that the Centre should take up Islamabad's ''blatant violation'' of UN Conventions with the international community, as both India and Pakistan are its signatories. The Conventions prohibit use of sea and land boundaries and weapons for terrorism, he said.

Mr Modi visited the families of late ATS chief Hemant Karkare, encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar and the injured admitted in the J J Hospital, before visiting the besiged Hotel Trident.

The BJP leader also did not forget to criticise Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for not making any strong statement against terrorism in his message to the nation.
