Mumbai, Nov 30 (ANI): After two days of encounter, things appeared calm near Mumbais Oberoi Trident hotel on Sunday.

Traffic resumed on the road outside the hotel and people could be seen strolling near the luxury hotel. Workers were busy carrying out sanitation work inside the room of the hotel.

Ten terrorists had attacked Mumbai’’s two top luxury hotels, its biggest railway station and several other landmarks with grenades and assault rifles in a rampage beginning on Wednesday night.

Mumbai disaster management authorities said at least 195 people had been killed and 295 wounded. The death toll has been rising even as bodies were collected from the Trident-Oberoi hotel and the Taj Mahal Hotel — scene of another siege that ended on Friday.

The attacks struck at the heart of Mumbai, the engine room of an economic boom that has made India a favourite emerging market.

It is also home to the “Bollywood” film industry, the epitome of glamour in a country blighted by poverty. (ANI)
