George W Bush arrives in Mumbai

Mumbai: Former US President George W Bush arrived here this evening on a “personal visit” and checked into the iconic Taj Mahal hotel in South Mumbai. “A private jet carrying Bush and his entourage landed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport sometime back.

He is in Mumbai for some personal work,” a senior IPS official told PTI. The 65-year-old Bush and his team checked into the Taj Mahal hotel where he is likely to attend an event tomorrow, police said.

A Quick Response Team (QRT) has been deployed outside the hotel for his security, they said. Bush, who was the President of United States between 2001-2009, is scheduled to leave the city early morning on Wednesday.
