After battling terrorists for two days at the Oberoi-Trident, the National Security Guards on Friday cleared the hotel of terrorists, killing two of them.

Police Commissioner Hassan Gafoor said 30 bodies have been recovered from the Trident hotel, including 24 on Friday.

Four people injured in the Oberoi standoff have been taken to the Breach Candy Hospital. The four people have been identified as Apoorva Parekh, Siddharth Tyagi, Ketan Desai and Amardeep Sethi.

"The Oberoi-Trident is now in under our control. The two terrorists holed up there have been killed," NSG Director General J K Dutt told media persons outside the hotel in south Mumbai.

Six bodies were also recovered from the hotel, he said.
The NSG has recovered two AK-47 assault rifles, one pistol and grenades, some unexploded, from the terrorists, he said, adding the explosives will now be defused.

"We are presently sanitising every room to make sure no undesirable elements are there and relief can be provided to guests there," Dutt said.
