Mumbai, 26 Nov: Eight years have been passed to the black day of India when 10 Lashkar-e-Taiba militants sneaked through the sea route and rocked the entire Mumbai.
On 26 Nov 2008, 166 people including security officials and other brave hearts were killed brutally by the Let operatives in the deadly attacks.
The state government announced compensation of Rs 5 lakh to the families of 166 victims in 2008 in which 3 lakh will be given by central government and rest two lakh by the state government . But the reality behind the curtain is really disappointing as 8 years after the terrorist attacks, the aggrieved families are still taking rounds of government offices in the void hope to avail the financial aid.It is worth Surprisingly that even the families of several foreign victims did not get the compensation yet.
If we talk about the figure, among a total of 166, families of 68 victims have not provided the financial aid yet.
On the horrible night of 26 November 2008, 10 terrorists entered Mumbai through the coastal route and brought the state to stand still for 60 odd hours. They killed dastardly 166 people and injured dozens of people. Indian army personnel put all their efforts to save lives and hacked all the terrorists to death except one, Ajmal Kasab who was caught alive. Kasab was hanged to death on 21 November in 2012 while mastermind of the dreadful attacks Hafiz Sayeed is still far away from the punishment for his deeds in Pakistan.
