Bollywood actor Ashish Chowdhury lost his sister and brother-in-law in the Mumbai terror attacks, while they had gone to dine at a famous restaurant in Oberoi Trident Hotel.
The actor was anxiously waiting outside the hotel for almost a day in the hope that his sister, Monica, will return amongst the rescued hostages. His wait, however, turned sour when she was identified amongst the killed.
‘My sister Monica and her husband have been inside the hotel along with maybe 40 other hostages. They came here for dinner last night, but now they are not answering any calls,’ he had told a news channel on Thursday.
The couple were shot straight in the head by the terrorists who held the prestigious hotel hijacked, for almost 60 hours.
Among other major tragedies were some prominent real-estate developers and lawyers. Total 160 people died in one of the worst terrorist attacks in the history of the country.
