AGARTALA, Nov 26 (TIWN): On the eighth anniversary of the 26/11 terror strikes, the whole country paused to remember the 166 victims, including the martyrs and other bravehearts, who were killed by 10 Pakistani militants, here on Saturday. Along with the whole nation, TIWN also prayed for the peace of the great martyrs' souls.

The 10 heavily armed militants, who sneaked in through the Arabian Sea and landed at Colaba seashore in a rubber dingy, struck at multiple locations within a small geographical area in south Mumbai.

The attacks and the counter-terror operations by multiple security agencies, continued for 60 hours between the night of Wednesday November 26 till the dawn of Saturday, November 29, 2008.

Similar functions were organised at targeted sites like Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Hotel Taj Mahal Palace & Tower, Hotel Trident-Oberoi, Nariman House-Chabad House, Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital and others.

Hotel Taj Mahal Palace partnered with The Sea Hawks and Wing Commander Paramvir Singh by commencing an open water 1,000 km long swim, intended to break the existing world record in this category.

TIWN also prayed for the another great martyr, bring and brought up in Tripura’s soil Shambhu Satmura, who was killed by Pakistanis on Nov 23 last.
