The untold story of the 26/11/2008 terrorist attack on Mumbai, in the words of its victims and the gunmen. The programme contains graphic images and descriptions of the atrocity which may upset some viewers. Produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker Dan Reed, Terror in Mumbai tells the story of what happened when 10 gunmen held one of the world's busiest cities hostage; killing and wounding hundreds of people while holding India's crack security forces at bay.
Featuring footage of the attacks and interviews with senior police officers and hostages, including the testimony from Kasab - the sole surviving gunman, Dispatches reveals what happened, hour by hour, from the perspective of the security forces, the terrorists, their masterminds and the victims.
One'd heard some of these intercepts before, but it was eerie listening to these young terrorists. How totally brainwashed they seem to be, and how totally in awe and fear of their handlers, and how gullible and how ready to go to 'jannat' -- and how casual their handlers sound while telling them to kill or to embrace death.
