List of People Injured and Shot Dead by Terrorists in Mumbai
Something lot of us had at the back of our minds… after the serial blasts all over India in the last 6-9 months when will the terrorists attack Mumbai… Never thought i would ever blog about something so gruesome as this. I pray for those who have had to go through the ordeal and have lost their loved ones. Its about time Indian government took a hard stance against this.
