One terrorist killed at Trident had Mauritius ID card’
THIS IS THE MOST SHOCKING NEWS EVER i GOT TO HEAR SINCE WEDNESDAY NIGHT!!! And here I was blogging that Mauritius should be alert...how IRONIC!!!
God! What did that really mean???? Did it mean that they had the intention to fly or sail to Mauritius if they succeeded in getting away OR that they tried to make people believe they were Mauritian tourists visiting India OR WORSE!!! that some high placed people in Mauritius actually helped them in getting those ID???
This is not a joke! This is damn serious! Mauritius!!! SHAME!!! Sincerely I have to get to the root of this story here and really understand where Mauritius fits in...but in case there were (are) Mauritians who helped in anything that happened in India, well, it's a shame for Mauritius.
Actually when I first heard the commando saying that I thought my ears were losing it...I sat there in front of the TV set waiting for a recap of the events and this time there was no doubt...THE TERRORISTS HAD MAURITIAN ID CARDS on them!
Mauritian identity cards found from slain terrorist.
7 credit cards from Indian and foreign banks
1,200 US Dollars, Rs 6,840 Indian Rupees retrieved
4 Chinese made grenades found
Many rounds of AK-47 ammunition found...
Really, I have been in a semi coma state since I've heard about the Mauritian ID news...well gets our island to be more popular, but wished it was for the right reasons instead of being like an ally for the terrorists...
A Mauritian identity card, credit and debit cards of banks and explosives were seized from the terrorists who attacked the Taj Mahal hotel, a senior marine commando said.
"We found a purse in a bag we found in which there was a Mauritian government identity card, seven bank credit and debit cards of banks like HSBC, HDFC and ICICI and cash of Rs 6,840. We have given all the details to the police," the commander of the marine commandos team said.
However, he refused to divulge details of the identity card and the bank documents found there.
A bag filled with material was found at the heritage building of the Taj Hotel by the marine commandos following a tense gun battle in which one marine commando was seriously injured and another sustained injuries.
The bag contained dry fruits as ration for several days, seven magazines of AK rifles, explosives, grenades, money and US currency, the commander of the marine commandos said.
Let us pray all this will not be easily forgotten and that the world rises with a spirit to kick terrorism real hard and eradicate it...
Innocent lives taken like this (September 9/11 - Mumbai 26/11) should not be tolerated. If the Mauritian authorities do not seriously look into the matter, well, we should expect a Mauritian ??/11 one of these days....
I pray to God that he thrusts some good sense in the pigeon head (an insult to the pigeons...) of our Political Leaders...
My prayers also go the families who have lost sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, wives, husband, friends...
My head rises high to salute those who tried not to panic and helped each other even in situations like this...Doctors, hotel staff, even the tourists who were on holidays but managed to sort things out for the group in which they were.
