The Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai, India, had been warned of a possible terrorist attack before a deadly rampage hit the iconic landmark this week, the chairman of the company that owns the hotel said Saturday.
The Taj was one of nine sites attacked by gunmen in a 60-hour wave of terror that killed at least 183 people and injured hundreds more before it ended in a standoff at the hotel Saturday morning. Before the attacks, the hotel had heightened security because of a warning it received, Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata said in an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria that will air Sunday.
But Tata said that nothing could have prevented gunmen from entering the hotel, despite the fact that it relaxed security shortly before the attacks."If I look at what we had, which all of us complained about, it could not have stopped what took place," he said. source
