October 13, 2006 03:47 IST
The visit follows formal announcement of counter-terrorism cooperation between India and the United Kingdom announced by the Prime Ministers of the two countries in London this week, a spokesperson of the British Deputy High Commission in Mumbai told PTI.
"Stuart Harrison, Deputy Chief of 'SO-13', London police anti terrorism branch, met senior Mumbai police officials including Anti-Terrorism Squad chief K P Raghuvanshi and me to discuss our successful investigations," Police Commissioner A N Roy told reporters in Mumbai.
Asserting that the visiting British police official was "impressed" with the investigations, Roy said a bigger team of UK police officials would be arriving here in the first week of November, as this was an "unscheduled" meeting.
"I met some cadets from the National Defence College of UK and was surprised to find Stuart amongst them," Roy said. Roy said that apart from briefing Stuart on the investigations carried out by the Mumbai police, the officials also asked him on the investigations into the July 7, 2005 bombings in London and the subsequent investigations by his department.
Nearly 200 people were injured after seven blasts in the local trains in Mumbai on July 11 this year while the July 7 bombings on the London tube had left 52 people dead. Mumbai police had recently announced that it had cracked the case.
