Mumbai: There is a deep anger in Mumbai among residents, visitors and all across India.
The operation to sanitise Nariman House and Hotel Oberoi Trident are over. Some accuse that the state administration was completely under-prepared and worse yet, underestimated the terrorists.
Questions are being raised over how the rescue operation has been conducted.
Helicopters para-dropping NSG commandoes on Friday morning mirrored the urgency of the situation.
But this action came more than 30 hours after the terrorists took control of Nariman House.
These are serious delays, experts say. In urban terrorism, usually the roof is secured as soon as possible before the terrorists can settle down. The home ministry agrees they were not fully prepared.
"We are looking into all these aspects. In future how to deal with these problems. Every problem is of a different nature. For jungle warfare different type of force is raised. This is a totally different type of a problem. Again we will have to think anew about these problems," said M L Kumawat, the Special Secretary for Internal Security.
When the attack began on the night of November 26, Wednesday, it took the local police nearly two hours to understand the magnitude of the attack.
And if you think that the lapses ended here, there's more.
