The Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai temporarily increased security after being warned of a possible terrorist attack, the chairman has said.

But Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata said those measures, which were eased shortly before this week's terror attacks, could not have prevented gunmen from entering the hotel. "If I look at what we had ... it could not have stopped what took place," Tata said in an interview with CNN. "It's ironic that we did have such a warning, and we did have some measures," Tata said, without elaborating on the warning or when security measures were enacted. "People couldn't park their cars in the portico, where you had to go through a metal detector."

However, Tata said the attackers did not enter through the entrance that has a metal detector. Instead, they came in a back entrance, he said.

Is the Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai partly responsible for the deaths there, having known a terrorist attack may be coming?

If they didn't try to evacuate everyone and they DID know of a pending attack then I would think they are.

It's hard to say that the hotel was responsible. They are responsible for alerting the authorities/police if they had received threats or some indication that they would be targeted for an attack. They can't be expected to evacuate the hotel because some guy calls in a terror threat against them...
