IBN - 7, a Hindi-language TV newschannel, reports that the Indian naval ships have surrounded a ship MV Alpha, suspected to have been used by the terrorists...when they arrived from Karachi, Pakistan. (the ship is reported to be registered in Vietnam)
However, this piece of news is still unconfirmed as the ships needs to be searched for actual proof of presence of arms and ammunition on board.
The body of Anti-Terror Squad Hemant Karkare is brought home..where people in large numbers pay their last respects to India's hero.
The firing and bomb blasts continue at the Taj Mahal Hotel, the Oberoi-Trident and Nariman House, where hostages are still held.
Some 5 Taj Hotel chef amongs the 15 staff are reported killed.
14 policemen have been killed in action, while the total death toll is now 125 and 350 injured.
Aside, there is this other news coming in that India's former Prime Minister V.P. Singh, who championed the controversial caste-based reservations, has died at the Apollo Hospital in New Delhi.
Most TV channels do not have this news yet...one carries it as a footnote.
What an irony? Nobody knows the caste of those brave policemen who fight for India in Mumbai today.
If they have a caste - its called humanity.
