The 1993 Bombay bombings were a series of 13 bomb explosions that took place in Bombay (now Mumbai), Maharashtra, India on 12 March 1993. The coordinated attacks were the most destructive bomb explosions in Indian history. The single-day attacks resulted in up to 250 civilian fatalities and 700 injuries.The attacks are believed to have been coordinated by Dawood Ibrahim, don of the organised crime syndicate named D-Company, which had operated as a terrorist organization. It is believed that the attacks were carried out in retaliation for widespread Hindu-Muslim riots in Mumbai during December and January, in the fall-out of the demolition of the Babri Mosque.
