It’s been ten years since the horrific Mumbai terrorist attacks of 26 November 2008. Here’s a look at some key incidents on that fateful day and the events that unfolded beyond. Over 160 people were killed in the horrific attacks.

While Ajmal Kasab was captured by the police and later hanged, nine terrorists – Hafiz Arshad, Abdul Rahman Chhota, Javed alias Abu Ali, Fahadullah alias Abu Fahad, Ismail Khan, Babar Imran , Nasir alias Abu Umar, Nazir alias Abu Umer and Shoaib alias Abu Soheb – were all shot dead during the attacks.

Many accused like David Headley and Abu Jundal have been convicted, but the masterminds like Hafiz Saeed, Sajid Mir and Abdur Rehman Hashim Syed are still walking free.
