File pics of 26/11 heroes who sacrifices their lives for the country

The 26/11 2008 still haunts Mumbaikars. The magnitude of the terrorist was such that it is difficult to forget it. Mumbai was in flames with the CSTM(VT) looking like a graveyard amid gunned down bodies strewn all over.

Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and State Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil and Aditya Thackeray while remembering the deadliest day paid their respects at the Memorial at the Police Headquarters.

Floral tributes were paidr on this Day, today, Friday, 26/11 to the Martyrs who laid down their lives fighting with the terrorists who massacred the Financial Capital, Mumbai, on November 26, 2008.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, who is recuperating in a Mumbai hospital after spine surgery, also remembered the 26/11 Martyrs.

Meanwhile, the 13th anniversary of the deadly terror attack was attended by a limited number of people in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Family members of some of the martyred police personnel also paid tributes at the memorial.
During the ceremony, the dignitaries met family members of some martyrs.

The then Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) chief Hemant Karkare, Army Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, Mumbai’s Additional Police Commissioner Ashok Kamte, Senior Police Inspector Vijay Salaskar and Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Tukaram Omble were among those killed in the attack.

Who can forget the bloody night at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, the Taj Mahal Hotel in flames, the Oberoi Trident, the Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital and the Nariman House Jewish community centre, now renamed Nariman Light House, which were some of the places targeted by terrorists.

Ajmal Kasab was the only terrorist who was captured alive. He was hanged four years later on November 21, 2012.
