14 Years On, Looking Back At 26/11

NEW DELHI: It was a string of terror attacks on a scale India had never seen before, on this day in 2008. Six coordinated strikes in India’s financial capital Mumbai numbed the nation and forced the world to take note of the tragedy unleashed by 10 terrorists trained and armed in Pakistan, who followed the instructions of their handlers sitting across the border. The casualties aside, the human tragedy was enormous and those who survived the carnage still wait for the scars of the trauma to heal. In this episode of ‘Ask Nitin’, StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale revisits the horrific attacks and how it jolted India to make significant changes to its security apparatus.
