The Dossier on 26/11 Mumbai Terror Attack

with one comment

The dossier of evidence pertaining to the 26/11 Mumbai Terror Attack presented by India to the world has been made public.

As far as I know, The Hindu is the only mainstream website which is hosting the pdf files on their website. Naturally, this has put a heavy load on their servers and people are finding it hard to download these documents.

I have managed to download these files courtesy Heptanesian Archives, and am now mirroring the same on this blog:

Part-1 (3.1 MB, pdf)

Part-2 (4.2 MB, pdf)

Part-3 (2.0 MB, pdf)

Part-4 (5.4 MB, pdf)

If you have a blog (other than on wordpress.com – because my files are already on their servers) or your own website, please consider mirroring a copy of the dossier, at least for a few days.

Inspector MC Sharma

Inspector MC Sharma

Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma was one of the recipients of the Police Medal for Gallantry this year on Republic Day (full list – pdf). He took three bullets during the encounter in Delhi in which two terrorists were killed, and one was captured, while two managed to escape. Head Constable Balwant, who also received a bullet, is reported to be out of danger.

… Inspector M C Sharma, a highly decorated officer of the special cell who has won gallantry awards seven times, was in a “critical condition” at the Holy Family hospital. [Rediff]

Take a couple of minutes off, and say a prayer for him to get well soon.

Update: He succumbed to the injuries on Friday, cremation service was held on Saturday. May his soul rest in peace.

And we need better execution of counter-terrorism operations. We can’t afford to lose people like him to hasty and insufficient planning.
