Solution

26th November 2008 is considered one of the black days in the History of Mumbai. 10 armed men wreaked havoc in the city, fired mercilessly at helpless Mumbaikars, and pushed the entire country into a state of fear for the next 3 days. The terrorist attack started when 10 heavily armed men arrived at two locations in Colaba in inflatable speedboats, at around 9:30 p.m. They then split into groups of two and opened fire at different locations of Mumbai. The locations targeted were Leopold Café, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Oberoi Trident, and Cama Hospital. They also blew up two taxis with explosives. Though the Mumbai Police were caught unawares by the terrorist attack, they showed exemplary courage and deftness and managed to neutralize three terrorists. In the course of their efforts to take stock of the situation, Police officers Hemant Karkare, Vijay Salaskar, and Ashok Kamte, were killed by the terrorists. The Mumbai Police managed to arrest the terrorist Ajmal Kasab alive near Girgaon Chowpatty. Police officer Tukaram Omble was martyred while achieving this feat. Later that night, two terrorists managed to sneak into the Nariman House building, a Jewish centre in Colaba while three of them entered the Taj Mahal Hotel building and held the residents' hostage. They threatened and even killed a few hostages in these locations. The center deployed the Rapid Action Force, Marine Commandos, and the NSG commandos for the rescue operation. The hostage situation at the Taj was resolved on the morning of 27th November. Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan of the NSG was killed during the rescue of Commando Sunil Yadav, who was hit in the leg by a bullet at Taj. The rescue operation at the Nariman House continued for the next two days. Finally, on 29th November 2008 at around 8 a.m., the nightmare ended as the last terrorist of the group was killed.
