Taj Hotel hostages rescued
Adjust font size:

All hostages at Taj hotel in Mumbai have been rescued, but there could be some still trapped at Trident hotel and Nariman House, Director General of Police (DGP) A. N. Roy said Thursday.

"There are guests in the rooms, but we won't be able to give you a number," he said.

The police chief also made it clear that there would be no negotiations with the militants, saying "we will very soon get them either alive or dead."

Security forces had launched an assault to flush out the gunmen from two luxury hotels - Taj and Trident (Oberoi) - where a couple of 100 people were believed to be either held hostage or trapped in the terror attacks that have claimed over 100 lives and left over 300 injured in India's financial capital Mumbai.

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister R R Patil told reporters outside the hotel as security forces prepared to launch an assault to end the terror attack that there could be 10 to 12 militants involved in the terror attack at a hotel in Mumbai and five of them have been killed and one of them arrested.
