Among those were some brave nurses who made it a goal to calm the patients and do their duties amid the gunfire.

“There were loud noises of gunfire and grenades and at the same time, a patient had delivered her baby,” said Jayshree Kurdundkar, nurse in-charge of Cama Hospital.

Madhuri Rahate, head nurse, Cancer Ward at Cama Hospital said that they tried to pacify the patients. “We told them nothing is going to happen, don’t worry. And just hearing this the patients were there in the hospital the whole night,” she said.
