The victim of 26/11 Mumbai attack

Ilyas Ansari, then 40, must have been happy on November 26, 2008 as he boarded younger brother Isareel’s taxi from Mumbra in the far suburbs of the financial capital to Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus along with his elder brother, their children and other relatives. Ilyas, a cook in a restaurant, was heading home to his native village Dhab in Bihar’s Nawada district (Sirdala block) after finalising his elder daughter Salma Khatoon’s marriage. Hours later, Ilyas and five other members of the family were dead, including two children, all from bullet injuries at the train station.

Nine years later, Ilyas’s son Mohammed Qayyum Ansari, 18, says the family is still struggling to get back on its feet, the government jobs for victims’ kin having been snapped up by uncles.

Nivedita Shinde still writes letters to her father, nine years after he died, often signing off with an “I love you, dad”. Nivedita, 23, lost her father Shashank Shinde, then senior police inspector with the Government Railway Police (GRP), at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) on November 26, 2008. “I write a letter to him on his birthday every year, and on Father’s Day. In these letters I express everything that I am feeling and I tell him about what’s happening in our lives. It is the only way I have to communicate with him,” she says.

Nivedita was 14 at the time of the attacks and recalls in detail how the incident affected her teenage years and her life in school. “When my friends would talk about their fathers, I would imagine how different things would have been had he been here to support us. I would visualise him being proud of my achievements. That’s when I started writing letters to him, to vent what I felt,” she says.

The victim of 26/11 Mumbai attack

Nine-year-old Shaurya has only a vague understanding of how the armed forces work, and he wonders sometimes if he’s fast enough to outrun grenades. But that hasn’t deterred him from making up his mind to join the Indian Army, as a “Class One officer”, his father’s dream. Shaurya’s father, Mumbai Police constable Jaywant Patil, was martyred in the 26/11 attack, among those killed in a police vehicle in the Rang Bhavan lane along with top police officials. “I want to join the army. Because it protects our country,” he says without hesitation when asked about his career plans.

A Class IV student in Satara city, Shaurya was five months old at the time of the attacks, and is not yet completely familiar with the circumstances of his father’s death. Jaywant Patil, the bodyguard of late Additional Commissioner of Police Ashok Kamte, died along with Kamte, Anti-Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare and encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar that night.

Just a month after the 26/11 attacks, Chief Ticket Inspector S K Sharma’s family launched an organisation in their hometown of Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, to support charitable causes. Called the Shaheed Sushil Kumar Sharma Foundation, it now offers free education to girl from weak socio-economic backgrounds, alongside a handful of courses in painting and self defence, among others.

Sharma, who was posted at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) on the night that terrorists struck at the busy train station, was hit by a bullet and died as he tried to rush home to celebrate son Aditya’s birthday. He turned 13 that day

​The victim of 26/11 Mumbai attack​
On the night it prowled the streets of Mumbai, death came for Prakash Mandal, then 25, in the form of a single assault rifle bullet that pierced his head from behind. He was waiting at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus in Mumbai to board a train to Chennai, late by an hour, when the indiscriminate firing began on the night of November 26, 2008.

Four years later, his wife Mamta Devi decided to make a fresh start, marrying her late husband’s youngest brother. The alliance was initiated by none other than her mother-in-law, says Mamta, whose daughter Shilpi, now 13, also has a baby sister, Sandhya, soon to turn two years old.
