Gautam Adani reveals how he survived the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack
Gautam Adani told that he had two encounters with death. First in the late 90s, when the kidnapping took place and the second time on 26 November 2008, when terrorists attacked the Taj Hotel in Mumbai.
Gautam Adani, Asia's first and world's third richest man, has revealed how he witnessed death from close quarters during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. Gautam Adani is one of the people who got trapped in the Taj Hotel during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack. In a private channel program, Gautam Adani told that "I had a meeting with my friends who came from Dubai to Mumbai that day at Taj Hotel and after that, I was having dinner with them. After paying for the dinner, I was about to leave the hotel." Some friends asked me to meet one more time, after which we started the meeting with a cup of coffee."
Gautam Adani told that shortly after the meeting, it was learned that there was a terrorist attack on the hotel, after which a few minutes later the hotel staff took me to the kitchen through the back door. He said that he thought about it many times "if I had gone to the lobby after paying the bill, I would have been caught in the attack."
Adani told that he was stuck in the hotel the whole night during the terrorist attack. The hotel staff took the back way upstairs to the chamber. The next day at 7 am when the commandos arrived, they escorted them out of the hotel with complete security.
Recalling the kidnapping in the 90s, Gautam Adani said that "I saw death twice in my life and it is God's blessing that I narrowly escaped." He said that "It is my nature to adapt myself to every situation. One should not worry about things which are not in one's hands, but I could not sleep the whole night on the day of the abduction."
One of the worst terrorist attacks in the country's history is the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai, in which 10 heavily armed Pakistani terrorists attacked the Taj Hotel on 26 November 2008. 166 people were killed in this attack and more than 300 people were injured. Apart from this, there were terror attacks on that day in Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Leopold Cafe, Nariman House and Oberoi Trident among other places.
