Mumbai, Nov 26: Five years on since the dastardly 26/11 terror attacks, Mumbai remembered the martyrs, victims and survivors at various commemoration events held in different parts of the city Tuesday, Nov 26.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, his cabinet colleagues and top police officials accompanied by a large number of families of 26/11 victims paid homage at the memorial built at Police Gymkhana at Chowpatty.

Floral tributes were offered to the martyrs and victims at the site by the dignitaries, including state Home Minister R.R. Patil and union Minister of State for Human Resource Shashi Tharoor, on the solemn occasion.

Similar commemorative events have also been planned at the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower and Oberoi Trident hotels, the Leopold Cafe and Nariman House, which were targeted by a group of 10 heavily armed Pakistani terrorists who killed 166 people and wounded another 300 during three days of mayhem Nov 26-29, 2008.

Obituary columns of many city newspapers carried photographs and tributes by family members, companies and employers of those innocent people who lost their lives in the terror madness.
