Mumbai: India paid homage to the victims and martyrs of the 26/11 terror attacks on its third anniversary here Saturday.

Maharashtra Governor K. Sankaranarayanan laid a wreath at the 26/11 memorial at the Police Gymkhana on Marine Drive in south Mumbai.

He was followed by Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, state Home Minister R.R. Patil, top police and civil officials.

Later, the family members of many of the policemen who were martyred while battling the terrorists, also laid wreaths at the memorial.

Thousands of commuters on the Central Railway paused briefly at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), one of the sites targeted by 10 Pakistani terrorists in 2008.

Some kept flowers in memory of the commuters killed by the terrorists, who sneaked into the city unhindered through the Arabian Sea and created mayhem in the city.

Similar homage functions were held at the Hotel Taj Mahal, Hotel Trident, Nariman House, Cama Hospital and at Chowpatty - the last being the venue where brave policeman Tukaram Ombale managed to catch one of the terrorists - Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab - alive.

Ombale was killed in the process.

The terror attacks left 166 dead, including several security personnel and foreigners besides over 300 people injured.
