Mumbai: It's the fourth anniversary of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks - the worst terror attacks on Indian soil. Tributes are being paid to martyrs and victims across the country. In Mumbai, where the carnage unfolded, a special memorial was held at the Police Gymkhana. Governor Sankaranarayan, Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan and Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde were present.

Each of them laid wreaths in honour of the martyrs. Top police officers were among the 166 people who died during the 72-hour long siege. Ten Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists from Pakistan had attacked the city, crippling it on this fateful day in 2008. Two five-star hotels, a railway station, a hospital and a Jewish community centre were among those targeted.

The attacks ended three days later when NSG commandos were sent in. Kasab, the only terrorist to be captured alive, faced trial and was hanged to death five days ago.
