`We Have Killed The Terrorists, But Operation Not Over," says India's National Security Guard Chief
By Manuwant Choudhary
"Three terrorists have been killed but we have found the dead bodies of two of them with their AK47. Yes, terrorists have been killed but the Operation is still on. We have to clear the Taj Mahal Hotel. Some rooms are still shut because some guests may be too scared of opening the door, " says J.K. Dutta, DGP, National Security Guard.
He applealed that all guests still inside open their curtains so the commandos can see through the windows to see if there is anyone else inside.
Mr. Dutta also spoke about the bravery of Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan.
"Sandeep went inside the room to help out an injured jawan. He went in all alone, when he came under fire. When other commandos told him they are coming in too he said please don't. Let me do my job."
"Sandeep died in the face of the greatest danger. We have lost our bravest man."
Indiavikalp recieved a lot of comments on the killing of Sandeep Unnikrishnan.
I too salute the major.
One reader who wrote to us knew Sandeep personally.
Another reader saw his Orkut profile, "Its such an irony that Sandeep's favourite band was a Pakistanis band Strings and he died by a Pakistani bullet."
One reader wrote how all those policemen killed were Maharashtrians and only Maharashtrians can be brave.
Thankfully, many..many other Indians still do not believe that.
Most of us still believe that all Indians are brave, yes I salute all 14 policemen who laid downs their lives.
I salute Maharastra. And India.
Major Sandeep is originally from Kerala but lived in Bangalore for 28 years and when he came to Bombay he did not even tell his parents and family members.
Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan was originally from the Bihar regiment.
And I am just a Bihari, who went to Bombay but returned to Bihar because I work and live for India.
