Remembering the 26/11 terror attacks on its eleventh anniversary, many people on Thursday paid tributes to the martyrs who fought Pakistan-based terrorists to protect the people of Mumbai on November 26, 2008. The terror attack cost the city of Mumbai 174 lives including security personnel and foreign nationals, and injured over 300 people.

Leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Shiv Sena chief and Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray and Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath paid tributes to the security personnel who died saving people. Industrialist Ratan Tata and Marathi actor Swwapnil Joshi also saluted the heroes of 26/11 by posting their appreciation on their social media handles.

Prime Minister Modi said India cannot ever forget the attack planned by Pakistan and has now been combating terrorism with new policy and updated methods. The PM’s tweet said that he paid obeisance to the security forces defending India, thwarting conspiracies like the Mumbai attack, and restricting terrorist activities.

Speaking on the continuing cross-border terrorism, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, who is on a three-nation tour of Bahrain, United Arab Emirates and Seychelles, tweeted that India will keep the global spotlight firmly on the menace of cross-border terrorism directed against it. Home Minister Amit Shah and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh saluted the courage of the martyrs who lost their lives on the midnight of November 26.

Shah tweeted that he was grateful to the brave security personnel who faced the terrorists. He said this nation will always be grateful to their bravery and sacrifices. Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray laid a wreath of flowers at the Mumbai Police Commissionerate in the presence of Governor BS Koshyari and state ministers. Congress leader Ashok Chavan also paid tributes to the martyrs.

Industrialist Ratan Tata applauded the spirit of Mumbai in an emotional Instagram post. Casting aside all differences, Ratan Tata urged the diverse people of the city for coming together to vanquish the terrorism and destruction on that day. Mumbai’s famous Taj Mahal Palace Hotel is one of the prime targets besides the Oberoi hotel, the Leopold Cafe, the Nariman (Chabad) House, and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus train station. Ratan Tata had played a very key role in rebuilding the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. It took 21 months to restore the iconic hotel to its glory.

In solidarity with India, United States State Department deputy spokesman Cale Brown said on Wednesday that the US stands with India in fighting against terrorism and ensuring justice for the victims. Condemning Pakistan-sponsored terrorism, Israel demanded the perpetrators of the massacre be brought to justice.

Rameshwaram Cafe blast: Karnataka Home Minister reveals how police inputs helped NIA arrest accused

The blast at the cafe occurred during lunch hour on March 1 at around 1 pm, which left 10 people injured



Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara said on Saturday that inquiry teams were attempting to determine whether the two suspects in the Rameshwaram cafe blast who were detained by the NIA had any connections to other terrorist groups. He also praised the state police for their contributions, some of which resulted in their arrest. Meanwhile, the suspects have been placed in 10-day police custody on remand.

The Karnataka police and the NIA have both performed incredibly well. In the beginning, they obtained all of the CCTV footage and monitored one of the accused, which helped in their arrest, he said.

The minister disclosed how the NIA was able to arrest the accused, which was possible because of a tip from the police.

He said the police shared very good inputs with the NIA, like the cap the accused was wearing, which was purchased from Chennai, and the telephone number he had given in the shop.

According to G Parameshwara, the services were also looking for connections between them and other crimes related to terrorism. He said that they might be attempting to flee from West Bengal to Bangladesh, where they were apprehended by the NIA.

He said the team is investigating the real motive behind the blast and their involvement with other terror outfits (ISIS), as these two (accused) are supposed to be involved in the earlier Shivamogga blast and kept running for three to four days ahead of getting arrested in this case, Parameshwara stated.

Since they were apprehended in West Bengal, a state that shares a border with Bangladesh, it’s possible that they wanted to leave the country. However, currently, they don’t have any precise information on this. He continued, They will discover in due course if there is someone assisting from that side (Bangladesh).

Meanwhile, the blast at the cafe occurred during lunch hour on March 1 at around 1 pm, which left 10 people injured. On March 3, the NIA took over the case from the police and announced a reward of Rs 10 lakh for any information regarding the two accused.
