The BBC's Prachi Pinglay was in Mumbai when the attacks took place and described the scenes of devastation.
Gunmen shot at passengers waiting for long-distance trains
Bhairavsingh Sinha, in his fifties, was waiting at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), formerly Victoria Terminus, for a train to Varanasi with seven of his family members when they were caught up in the indiscriminate firing, which severely injured his daughter and grandson.
Most of the casualties of the Mumbai attacks are reported to have occurred at CST, where two of the suspected militants started shooting at passengers waiting for long distance trains.
At Saint George hospital in south Mumbai, 63 people have been confirmed dead. Nearly 100 were sent to other government hospitals for treatment.
Most of the dead died from bullet injuries, doctors said.
The scene in the reception area of the hospital was stark.
Several bodies were lined up in a temporary enclosure in the reception area. Relatives of the victims were coming in to identify their loved ones.
Doctors said that most of the injured in need of advanced treatment were being sent elsewhere, including to the Sir JJ and Bombay hospitals.
Eyewitnesses describe the attacks in Mumbai
While Mr Bhairavsingh's daughter Poonam battled for life in Saint George hospital, her sons, five-year-old Sachin and a two-year-old, were taken to JJ hospital.
Waiting outside Sir JJ hospital gate, Mr Bhairavsingh said he wanted to take his grandchildren to their mother.
"Both the kids must be crying without their mother. We need to be with her. She is very badly injured," he said.
"We were just waiting to go back to Varanasi. While I had gone to take the tickets, the firing started. By the time I ran back to where my family was, those men had killed so many people."
At Sir JJ Hospital, more than 125 patients have been admitted. The hospital staff were preventing anyone else from entering to avoid it to becoming over-burdened.
Mastan Qureshi, a tour guide, was one of the victims at CST station. His brother-in-law, Mohammed Hanif Peer Mohammad, said he was waiting for others when he was fired at.
