Now, THIS is what was disturbing and builds on the case that these were no “ordinary” terrorists.. but commandos dressed as ordinary terrorists.. WITH complete planning and layout backup!
“The terrorists were well-informed about the layout of both the Taj Mahal Palace and the Oberoi Trident. It’s absolutely certain that these men had done a survey of the hotel interiors before the strike on Wednesday night,” the Marcos’ commandant said.
The terrorists even knew which room had the closed-circuit television cameras, which would give them a clear view of the alleys and lobbies of the entire Taj, and reached and captured the room before the commandos did. “The terrorists hurled grenades the moment commandos neared the CCTV room and it could not be accessed because of the smoke and fire that followed,” he said.
The Marcos found operating in the dark difficult despite their vast experience but the terrorists quite comfortably ran between the Taj’s new and heritage wing, engaging the Marcos in tackle-and-dodge combat commonly seen in the Kashmir valley, officials said.
But what the terrorists lacked was any remorse or compunction, the commandos said, referring to the spraying of bullets on hotel guests.
