INTERPOL condemns terror attacks in India

LYON, France – INTERPOL has condemned Wednesday’s terror attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai in which at least 20 people were killed and more than 100 injured, and pledged its full support to national authorities in their investigation.

Following the three explosions across the city, INTERPOL’s Command and Co-ordination Centre (CCC) at its General Secretariat headquarters in Lyon, France immediately contacted the National Central Bureau in New Delhi to offer any assistance required.

All requests for information from Indian authorities are being treated with the highest priority by the CCC which operates 24-hours-a-day, and INTERPOL has also offered to deploy an Incident Response Team consisting of specialized officers from its Disaster Victim Identification and/or Public Safety and Terrorism units, operational assistants and analysts.

If requested, INTERPOL can also issue one of its colour-coded international notices to alert law enforcement around the world about the modus operandi behind the attacks, to obtain additional information about individuals in relation to the investigation, or to seek the arrest of persons wanted in connection with the incident.
