Marking the first anniversary of the 26/11 terror attacks, the city police on Thursday held a parade here and paid homage to those killed in the dastardly strikes.

The counter terror unit, Force One, and Quick Response Teams (QRT) participated in the parade that began from the Nariman Point area, which is just a stone throw away from the Trident hotel, one of the places attacked by the terrorists last year.

Besides, advanced combat vehicles and other weaponry procured post 26/11 attacks were also displayed.

Chief Minister Ashok Chavan and Deputy Chief Minister Chhagan Bhujbal were also present at the event.

The parade ended at Girguam-Chowpatty in South Mumbai.

Meanwhile in Nashik, various programmes were held in the district and Jalgaon in north Maharashtra to pay tributes to the martyrs of the 26/11 terror attacks.

Police Jawan Arun Chitte and Jalgaon’s Muralidhar Choudhari were the victims in the attacks that took place last year.

School children took out ‘Prabhat Pheri’ this morning at Nashik observing national integrity day and paid homage to the martyrs, including slain Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) chief Hemant Karkare.

Nashik District Newspaper Sellers Association and other social organisations in Jalgaon also paid tributes to the victims.
