The Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Corporation (KDMC) has reportedly failed to maintain the memorial that was raised in the honour of 26/11 martyrs in Mumbai.

As per reports, ahead of the November 26 terror attack anniversary, the locals have claimed that the Boots, Gun and Helmet Memorial at Mahatma Phule chowk had gone missing seven months ago. However, now, the entire memorial is missing.

Arvind More, the union president of Kalyan’s hawkers has been following up on the memorial and has stated that the Kalyan-Dombivli Municipal Corporation (KDMC) has failed to maintain the memorial in his statement to the media. In the past, locals have complained about the memorial being misused by drunkards who used to dump waste in the area.

The memorial was built back in 2012 in the memory of the five police officers who lost their lives in the terror attack on November 26, 2008. The 2008 Mumbai attacks which are also referred to as 26/11 were a series of terrorist attacks that took place in November 2008, when 10 members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, an extremist Islamist organisation based in Pakistan, carried out 12 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks lasting four days across Mumbai.

The victims lost their lives in the terror attacks at various places namely, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Mumbai Chabad House, The Oberoi Trident, The Taj Palace & Tower, Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital, The Nariman House, the Metro Cinema, and in a lane behind the Times of India building and St. Xavier's College, eleven years ago which began on November 26, 2008.
