Maharashtra assembly to debate 26/11 report today

Last updated on: December 01, 2009 11:31 IST

The Maharashtra Assembly will today initiate a debate on the Pradhan Committee Report into the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.

The report has criticized Mumbai Police for poor co-ordination and supervision, besides poor and inadequate infrastructure support.

The report also criticises former Mumbai Police Commissioner Hasan Gafoor for poor leadership and admires the Director General of Police (DGP) for giving off his best despite the area being out of his jurisdiction.

The report praises Joint Police Commissioner Rakesh Maria for handling the police control room to the best of his ability.

The report also lashes out at the confusion over intelligence alerts, saying proper operational procedures were not followed.
Vinita Kamte, the wife of slain police officer Ashok Kamte has already expressed her disappointment over the report giving a clean chit to the Mumbai Police and the state government.
