Vanni MP condemns Mumbai killings

[TamilNet, Thursday, 27 November 2008, 20:08 GMT]
The deliberate and indiscriminate killing and injuring of hundreds of civilians and foreign tourists in Mumbai by armed men shocks the civilized world and is beyond all justification, said Selvam Adaikalanathan, Tamil National Alliance MP for Vanni, on Thursday.

At least ten locations including three luxury hotels, a crowded railway terminal, a cafe, a hospital, a cinema and a Jewish community centre in the commercial heart of Mumbai were targeted by heavily armed men on Wednesday night who fired people at random and held many as hostages.

Even though claims have been made in the name Deccan Mujahudeen, the exact identity and the real motives of the attackers are yet to be revealed.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, strongly condemning the terror attacks in Mumbai, blamed that elements based outside India were behind the attacks.
