Terror site to host security summit ahead of 26/11 anniversary

The conference 'Security and Resilience Summit: Securing the City of Dreams', organised by Mumbai-based NGO Bombay First, will be held on November 13.

"We need to do something to prevent terror attacks worldwide as these terrorists are moving across national boundaries spreading terrorism. By bringing the international community together we can work towards fighting this scourge," Bombay First chairman Narinder Nayar said.

Top officials and experts from the US and UK will discuss and debate on the lessons learnt from the terror attacks on India and their own countries, he said.

"We have invited experts from New York and London who were involved in dealing with the situation in the aftermath of the 9/11 and 7/7 attacks to share their perceptions and experiences with us. Also, our senior police and civil officials will present their views," Nayar said.

Union Home Minister P Chidambaram, Chief Minister Ashok Chavan and National Security Advisor M K Narayanan, noted counter-terrorism expert Brett Lovegrove and Police Commissioner of London Sir Paul Stephenson are among the participants expected to attend the conference, he added.
