Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh on Friday refused to comment on investigations into the Mumbai terror attacks till the operations to flush out terrorists are over.
"I will not talk on investigations till the operations are complete. Let the security forces first flush out terrorists from Nariman House and hotels," he told reporters outside the Oberoi-Trident Hotel, the scene of the terror attacks.
He said one terrorist was still inside the Taj hotel, from where 60 persons have been evacuated.
The Chief Minister, who declined to disclose casualty figures saying they were being updated, said that the terrorists were still indulging in firing from the hotels.
He said the commandos have done a commendable job and added that they were going slow to ensure the safety and security of the hostages and for the sake of minimal damage.
