India is remembering the victims of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks on its eighth anniversary on Saturday, as various events are being held across the nation, especially Mumbai, to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the horrific attack.
On November 26, 2008, 10 Pakistani terrorists reached Mumbai by sea route and opened fire indiscriminately at people killing 166, including foreign nationals and 18 security personnel.
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Governor C Vidyasagar were among dignitaries who paid tributes to martyrs of 26/11 attacks.
“I pay homage to the brave policemen who fought for Mumbai’s safety and laid down their lives for us on 26/11. We are proud of them and we will strive hard for safety and security of our state,” Fadnavis said.
“We will strengthen police force with better equipment. It is our priority,” he said.
