26 November 2011. Ten highly motivated and trained terrorists, armed with guns, grenades and improvised explosive devices, slip past coastal security cordons on India s western seacoast in a fishing trawler. Over the next three agonizing days, India s Maximum City is brought to its knees as the fedayeen wreck unprecedented havoc at preselected landmarks, holding India s commercial capital hostage. The response to this attack was the first instance of all three wings of the Indian armed forces coming together to fight terror. The attacks tested the mettle of India s elite counter-terrorist force, the National Security Guard.

Black Tornado, as the operation was termed by the NSG, is the story of these men called into action in the desperate hours following the most violent terrorist attack the country has ever seen. Sandeep Unnithan puts together a blow-by-blow account of the terrorist strike and how the siege of Mumbai was thwarted by India s security forces.
