Trident begins evacuating guests
November 28, 2008 15:26 IST
After the National Security Guard Director General J K Dutt told the media that the Trident Hotel had been sanitised and cleared of terrorists, a spokesperson for the hotel said: "The police and government authorities have allowed us access to the hotel. We were granted permission to begin evacuating guests from the hotel from 2.15 pm on Friday.
"Staff of the hotel accompanied by personnel from the security forces have been proceeding from room to room and escorting guests to the lobby level of the hotel. From there the guests are being led to a nearby facility where first aid and counselling is being offered. Representatives from several consulates are also present to extend assistance. After details of each guest are confirmed, our staff is taking them to other hotels in the city where arrangements have been made for their stay."
"This process is likely to take time as we are going room to room, one floor at a time," she added.
Those wanting more details can contact the hotel at +91-11-2389 0555 or toll-free 1 800 11 2122.
