From Murder Mystery To Spy Thriller: The Continuing Saga Of The Mumbai Terror Attacks - By Raveena Hansa, 13 May 2010, Countercurrents.org
A great deal of new evidence concerning the 26 November 2008 terrorist attacks in Bombay has emerged over the past year.
- Patna: The Bombay High Court today issued notice to the central and state government on a petition seeking high-level probe into the killing of Maharashtra ATS chief Hemant Karkare and two other higher police officers during the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai in 2008.
We know now that 26/11 could have been avoided. Indian intelligence knew that the terrorists were heading for Bombay a day before the attacks and knew what their targets were. But, as Home Minister P Chidambaram admitted in an interview to me, “We failed to connect the dots.”
Whose bullets killed the Maharashtra ATS chief and Inspector Vijay Salaskar, if they were not that of Kasab and Ismail? Was there some other sinister force out to eliminate Karkare and stop him at all costs? And how come Karkare's line of investigations has finally opened up the terrorist can of Hindutva outfits that triggered bomb blasts across the country?
