Moshe Holtzberg, survivor of the "26/11" Mumbai attack, returns to his hometown. The meeting at Chabad House was an emotional affair as Netanyahu kissed Moshe.

Last year Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Israel, becoming the first Indian prime minister to do so. Netanyahu then invited the boy to join him on his trip to India this week.

Netanyahu arrived in New Delhi for a six-day visit Sunday and will travel to Mumbai on Thursday, where he will visit the Chabad House where Holtzberg's parents, Rabbi Gabriel Noach Holtzberg and his wife Rivkah, were gunned down as 10 Muslim terrorists rampaged through Mumbai in a three-day siege.

They acquire an enormous amount of experience and knowledge and can start their own business, Netanyahu said.

Israel's prime minister has visited a Jewish center in Mumbai and unveiled a memorial to 166 people who were killed by militants who rampaged through the Indian city in 2008.

Addressing the India-Israel Business Summit at the iconic Taj hotel, Netanyahu said, "future belongs to those who innovate". He further adds, "Partnership between India and Israel is doing wonders".

Countries like India and Israel if they come together I'm sure the fight against terrorism can be intensified and the world can win this fight: CM Fadnavis.

Today, Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu laid a wreath at the memorials of the victims of 26/11 terror attacks.

During Moshe's visit to Nariman House, there was a large gathering of members of the Jewish community, police, security personnel and media around the building, whose entry was restricted. In Nariman house, Benjamin met 11-year-old Moshe Holtzberg who came back to India after nine years.
