CNN IBN (a leading Indian news channel) recently posted on its website whereabouts of Ajmal Kasab (Mumbai 26/11 Terrorist)
The news channel has even posted a Google Earth view of Arthur Road jail and the cell where Kasab will be kept.
Why would any one want to know the exact location of a terrorist? Perhaps Toral Varia (The Reporter) could answer this.
Samajwadi Party general secretary Amar Singh termed as “speculative” news reports that he had donated USD one million to the Clinton Foundation. “I do not have the amount mentioned to donate”
However his name appears clearly on the list.
|Ajmal Qasab is Pakistan resident?
| Updated at: 2136 PST, Friday, December 12, 2008
ARID KOT: Ajmal Qasab, allegedly involved in Mumbai attacks and presently in Indian custody, is a resident of Farid Kot, Pakistan.
Geo News team that arrived in Farid Kot to investigate this, started inquiring the local people about Ajmal Qasab. Most of the people seemed unwilling to speak. However, a man or two confirmed that Ajmal Qasab’s father Amir Azam Qasab used to sell ‘Pakora’ in the area while his son Ajmal Qasab worked in the crop fields.
It was investigated that Ajmal Qasab ran away from home four years ago because his father failed to provide him new clothes on Eid as his son desired.
Pakistanis’s are fooling no one but themselves , when they say they are awiting concrete proof.
A committee of the United Nations Security Council has placed sanctions against Pakistan-based Jamaat-ud-Dawa, a front organisation for Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), declaring it a terrorist organisation.
The committee has added Jamaat and four Lashkar leaders to a list of firms and people facing sanctions for ties to al-Qaeda or the Taliban the UN said.
The terrorists added to the sanctions list include Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, which the UN statement described as the leader of the group.
The others are Pakistan-born Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, the chief of operations, Haji Muhammad Ashraf, the chief of finance, and India-born Mahmoud Mohammad Ahmed Bahaziq, described as a financier for the group who served as its chief in Saudi Arabia.
However, it remains to be seen whether Pakistan upholds the UNSC sanctions.
