Mumbai: Anxious kin search for beloved
Syed Firdaus Ashraf | November 27, 2008 13:34 IST
The scene outside JJ Morgue in south Mumbai summed up the travesty that had struck India's financial capital. Anxious family members have been pouring in since early Thursday morning to find out about their near and dear one, who fell prey to terrorists' bullets.
Chaos ruled supreme as families ran from pillar-to-post to trace their relatives' antecedents. The fact that cases have been registered in different police stations has added to the confusion.
Maniben Solanki, who has been searching for her nephew Lala, said: "He was having some snacks near the Cama Hospital when the terrorists attacked. I have been searching for him since 6 AM. I don't know what to do."
Meanwhile, Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister R R Patil said a compensation of Rs 5 lakh will be given to the kin of those killed in the terror attacks. Rs 50,000 will be paid to the seriously injured.
