New Delhi: Some of the highlights of RD Pradhan Committee report are:
Police lacked equipment and strategy and were not able to counter well-trained and fully-equipped terrorists;
Mumbai`s policemen had not been given regular firing practice since September 2007;
There was lack of cohesion and communication in the internal working of then Mumbai Police Commissioner Hassan Gafoor`s office;
Gafoor should have taken the lead and handled the situation from the police control room rather than locating his operational control near Trident Hotel;
Counter-terror operations lacked visible leadership;
The structure of the anti-terrorist squad and its operations are in a confused state.
There was serious lapse on the part of much of the individuals as of the system in place.
