Bush in Mumbai for business meet


Bush and PM in US Meeting
MUMBAI: Former US president George W Bush arrived in Mumbai around 7.45pm on Monday on a private visit.

Sources said Bush is in the city to attend a business meet and to speak at an event organized by a leading private general insurance company on Tuesday. The former president is staying at a five-star hotel in south Mumbai.

Sources said there was unprecedented security in and around the hotel due the threat perception. Bush flew into Mumbai from South Korea on a chartered Boeing 767, said an airport official, adding that he was scheduled to return around 7am on Wednesday.

"We had 2-3 meetings with officials from the US consulate to discuss the arrangements for his visit," said an airport official.
