Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid homage to the victims of horrific 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks on its sixth anniversary and saluted the security personnel while reaffirming India’s commitment to combat the menace of terror and “uproot it from the face of humankind”.
“We remember the horrific terror attacks in Mumbai on this day in 2008 and pay homage to the innocent men and women who lost their lives,” Modi, who arrived in Kathmandu on Tuesday to attend 18th SAARC Summit, tweeted.
“We salute the brave security personnel who laid down their lives to protect several lives on that fateful day. They are our true heroes. Today is a day to reaffirm our commitment to work together to combat the menace of terror and uproot it from the face of humankind,” the Prime Minister said.
Pakistan-based terror outfits carried major terror attacks, which drew widespread global condemnation, in Mumbai on November 26, 2008, killing 166 people and injuring hundred of others.
