In a shocking turn of events, Mumbai’s Taj Colaba and Taj Lands End in Bandra received threat calls on Tuesday, following which security has been beefed up in the area.
According to officials, the call is said to be made from Pakistan at around 12.30 am. It threatened to blow up the hotel. The statement of the staffer who received the call will be recorded.
For the uninitiated, in 2008, the Mumbai hotel had become victim to 26/11 terror attack. In one of the deadliest terror attacks in India’s history, 166 people were killed and over 300 injured when 10 heavily-armed Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists from Pakistan created mayhem in Mumbai on November 26, 2008.
The terrorists also targeted the Nariman House (also known as Chabad House) where six Jews were killed. They were Chabad emissaries to Mumbai at that time.
