rediff

A blast was also reported in Vile Parle in suburban Mumbai

Additional Commissioner of Police Deven Bharti confirmed the shootout at Colaba but did not give out details.

Two persons armed with automatic weapons and hand grenades are reportedly holed up inside CST station.


Sounds of gunshots are still being heard. Hundreds of onlookers gathered outside the station. The station and premises have been evacuated

Sources in the Cuffe Parade police station said that the police was still looking for the miscreants behind the firing at Colaba Causeway.

Eyewitnesses said that they heard at least 20 shots in CST station. Policemen and ambulances have rushed to the affected areas, they said.
A resident of Colaba and an eyewitness to some of the incidents said, "The police got news that there were explosions at the BMC headquarters in Lion Gate in South Mumbai. When the police arrived, the gangsters/terrorists fired at the police. As the police started chasing them towards the CST station, they opened indiscriminate fire."

There were reports of explosions from the BMC headquarter and Oberoi Hotel.

tomorrow's headline: in a very disturbing revelation, the ATS says that LtC Purohit was involved in the training of these terrorists as a ploy to turn public opinion against the minorities of this country.

Wait for ATS to claim how LT COL did it. Praganya too. I guess they got out of ATS custody (since they know yoga and have practiced breaking away from jail, ATS has a video of that training) and fired upon people and are back. Sonia is happy and MMS is not loosing sleep.

Terror attacks in Mumbai; 2 dead, several injured

MUMBAI: Terrorists struck at India's financial capital late Wednesday night as at least five near-simultaneous firings and explosions rocked
areas in the vicinity of posh hotels in South Mumbai, leaving two persons dead and ten injured. ( Watch )

Armed with AK-47 rifles and grenades, a couple of terrorists entered the passenger hall of crowded Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminal (CST) railway station and opened fire and threw a grenade killing two to three persons, Mumbai General Railway Police Commissioner A K Sharma said. He did not give details.

He, however, said 10 persons, including a policeman, were injured in the CST incident.

Eyewitnesses said some people suspected to be terrorists entered the CST building from outside the reservation counter and opened fire indiscriminately.

Two explosions also went off outside CST and eyewitnesses reported they heard gunshots outside the railway station building.

Firing was reported at Colaba, Nariman Point and near Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminal, formerly Victoria Terminus, and it was still continuing.

Some people were injured in the firing near Trident hotel, formerly Oberoi hotel, and taken to a nearby hospital in police vans and ambulance.

4 Dead, two hotel are under siege...hostages taken.

Mumbai: At least four people are reported to have been killed and 15 are injured as unidentified groups of gunmen opened fire in at least four places across south Mumbai on Wednesday night.


Mumbai police confirm it is a terrorist attack. The five-star Hotel Oberoi is under siege and gunmen are reported to have held the occupants hostage.


Reports say 10 gunmen are holed up inside Hotel Oberoi.


Details are sketchy but it is believed that groups fired outside the CST Railway Terminus, Hotel Oberoi, the popular Café Leopold restaurant and Cama Hospital all in south Mumbai.
The first incident took place at between 2215 hrs IST and 2230 hrs IST when bullets, apparently from automatic weapons, were fired at police and paramilitary forces outside the Taj Hotel in south Mumbai.


The first shooting took place near the CST police station in which six people were injured.


Police have cordoned off the CST Railway Terminus, a crowded place at this time of the evening, and have stopped entry.


Press Trust of India reports two persons armed with automatic weapons and hand grenades are holed up inside the CST station.


Mumbai’s police commissioner confirmed there had been shootouts in several places in the city.


At CST


Unidentified persons also opened random firing near Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, headquarters of the Central Railway, which is a world heritage building and remains crowded almost throughout the day.


A police official said he saw two people, armed with automatic weapons, at CST.


"They opened indiscriminate fire and fled inside. They are reported to be holed up between platform seven and eight," he said.

Damn Yindu terrorists, must be the handiwork of all those poojaris!

is CST=churchgate or VT ?

nobody seems to have a freakin clue about the true extent or if they
know are keeping very quiet about it until their political handlers figure
out how to craft a message of yindu terrorists on this , preferably after
the real ones have decamped into the dark night.

I am sure MK Narayanan, is going to call up IB and RAW chief and give them an earful. As this is occurring during election time. Can't wait for RAW chief to leave next month. It is becoming like Saudi intel agency (only know how to write cheques).

Whatever happens, they will probably spin the outcome to, show how Yeevil Yindu's are involved.

No worries, they are busy interrogating (or concocting stories) the Malegaon suspects. This is not important. :twisted:

Point is your expectation are misplaced.

I understand your post.
IBN is already croaking abt SECULAISM.

MMS - Multi-Media-Message - no heart no soul . Anything to be heard ?

The attack makes me think LeT could be involved. Such audacity! We should try and get those holed up pigs alive... at least one of them.

Anybody around Mumbai, please be safe.

Heartfelt condolences to the families of victims.
