Mumbai: Hundreds of people Thursday donated blood at a blood donation camp organised at CST, where terrorists killed 58 people on the day last year.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan was present at the camp encouraging volunteers to donate blood.

People gathered to pay their tributes to the victims of the terror attacks by offering flowers at a memorial in memory of those killed.

Prayers were also held with porters, railway workers and others laying wreaths at the memorial.

CST was one of the first spots that Ajmal Kasab and his associate Abu Ismail attacked on 26/11.

Prayers are also being held at Nariman House, where six people, including a Rabbi and his wife, were held hostage in a 45-hour siege and then killed by terrorists. Nariman House will be thrown open to the public this evening.

In the morning, Mumbai residents witnessed an impressive show strength by police, with AK 47s and amphibious vehicles on display in a parade from Marine Drive to Girgaum Chowpatty.
