Mumbai terror attack
Mumbai, Nov 26: Remembering the Taj victims and their saviours is all that we can do. But how they spent their last moments inside the five star hotel premises is beyond anybody's imagination. The NSG commandoes spent relentless 60 hours into the crusade to find the four terrorists

Eight of the attacks occurred in South Mumbai: at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, the Oberoi Trident, the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower, Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital (a women and children's hospital), the Nariman House Jewish community centre, the Metro Cinema, and in a lane behind the Times of India building and St. Xavier's College.

By the early morning of 28 November, all sites except for the Taj hotel had been secured by Mumbai Police and security forces.

On 29 November, India's National Security Guards (NSG) conducted 'Operation Black Tornado' to flush out the remaining attackers; it resulted in the deaths of the last remaining attackers at the Taj hotel and ending all fighting in the attacks.

No chronology is required to narrate the horror and helplessness that the survivors and the victims went through. As estimates go, close to 164 victims and 9 attackers were killed in the 60 hour carnage. Among the dead were 28 foreigners from 10 countries. Among the Indian victims were notable businessmen, and media personalities.
