Mumbai’s iconic Taj Hotel has received a bomb threats call from Pakistan following which the security has been beefed up in the area. Security tightened outside Taj Hotel and nearby areas after a threat call was received yesterday from Karachi, Pakistan to blow up the hotel with bombs.
On 26 November 2008, there was a terrorist attack in Mumbai in which Taj Hotel was also targeted. In one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in the country’s history, 166 people were killed and over 300 injured as 10 heavily-armed Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists from Pakistan created mayhem in the financial capital. Kasab, the lone terrorist captured alive.
