7/11: the day Mumbai came to a standstill The Mumbai train bombings on 11 July 2006 were one of the deadliest attacks the city had seen after the 1993 blasts. The terror strike aimed to cripple the city by disrupting its lifeline-the local train network. A series of seven explosions in a span of only six minutes at seven railway stations rocked the financial capital of India, killing 189 and injuring over 800. Six Minutes of Terror is the first investigative book that presents a blow-by-blow account of the events that led to the onslaught. It profiles the people involved in the blasts and describes how the plot was unearthed by the police. Superbly researched with painstaking detail, the book tries to delve into the minds of the home-grown terrorists-who wreaked unprecedented havoc and claimed innocent lives-ten years after the horrifying attacks.
