ThisDayThatYear: A Traumatic Period For Mumbai

Barely a month after riots broke out in the city post the Babri Masjid demolition, riots erupted afresh, this day, 27 years ago, when six members of a family were burnt alive at Jogeshwari's Radhabai Chawl. The city continued to burn till 12th January, before an uneasy peace was restored. The riots eventually culminated in the serial bomb blasts of 12th March, 1993.
