Mumbai: A Mauritian identity card, credit and debit cards of banks and explosives were seized from the terrorists who attacked the Taj Mahal hotel, a senior marine commando said.
“We found a purse in a bag, in which there was a Mauritian government identity card, seven bank credit and debit cards of banks like HSBC, HDFC and ICICI and cash of Rs6,840. We have given all the details to the police,” the commander of the marine commandos team said.
However, he refused to divulge details of the identity card and the bank documents found there.

The bag contained dry fruits as ration for several days, seven magazines of AK rifles, explosives, grenades, money and US currency, the commander of the marine commandoes said.
