Mumbai: Amid reports that one of the terrorists worked as a chef in its hotel, Tata-owned Taj Group on Saturday said there was no indication that any of its employees was involved in the attack.
“We are extending our full cooperation to the investigating authorities. We have had no indications from them that any employee or contractual staff of the hotel have been involved in terrorist attack as is being reported by some media outlets,” Indian Hotels Company chief executive officer and managing director Raymond Bickson said in a statement.
There have been reports that one of the terrorists involved in the attack had worked as chef in the hotel for the last 10 months.
Mr. Bickson, along with vice-chairman R.K. Krishna Kumar, accompanied group Chairman Ratan Tata to the devastated heritage hotel, immediately after the commandos gunned downed the terrorists who were holed up in the hotel since Wednesday. — PTI
