Pakistani confesses to involvement in Mumbai attacks

ISLAMABAD: Pakistani investigators have unearthed substantive links between the gunmen who attacked Mumbai in November and a banned militant group, a foreign journal reported on Wednesday. It said in an online report that at least one top Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) leader, Zarar Shah, captured in a raid early this month had confessed to the group’s involvement in the attack.“He is singing,” an unidentified Pakistani security official told the newspaper, referring to Shah. Shah’s admission was backed up by the US intercepts of a telephone call between Shah and one of the attackers during the assault, the Pakistani security official told the newspaper.

“These guys showed no remorse,” said the Pakistani official. “They were bragging. They didn’t need to be pushed, tortured or waterboarded” into making their statements.

One Lashkar fighter who left the group several years ago said in an interview that the agency (ISI) was directly involved in planning operations in the disputed Kashmir region. The agency’s officers were “at the table” as missions were being sketched out, the former Lashkar fighter said. However, an active member of Lashkar said in an interview that relations with Pakistani security forces had grown cold. “We always had to hide from the Indian military, but now we have to hide from the Pakistani military as well,” he said.

The ISI has always been a powerful and semiautonomous agency, and its top officers have maintained strong links to Islamist militants. There is some hope that the appointment three months ago of a new spy chief, Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha, who previously oversaw military operations against militants in Pakistan’s lawless western districts, signaled a move away from sympathies with the Islamist fighters who control much of the region bordering Afghanistan.

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.

World Designates Jamaat-ud-Dawa as Terrorist Outfit , And Pakistan Still Needs Proof

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.

Arrested Terrorist is Pakistani – Pakistani Media

Zaid Hamid ( A leading Pakistani defence analyst) had earlier claimed that the arrested terrorist was a Hindu.

It would be interesting to see what this joker can come up with now.

Kasab’s home ‘located’ in Faridkot – Pakistan Daily

* The Observer says gunman’s parents on electoral roll in Depalpur

WASHINGTON: A correspondent claims to have established that the lone surviving Mumbai gunman, named Ajmal Amir Kasab, comes from Faridkot, a village in the Okara district, who is the son of Muhammad Amir and Noor.

The correspondent, Saeed Shah, who visited the village, writes in The Observer, London, that he has obtained electoral lists for Faridkot showing 478 registered voters, including a Muhammad Amir, married to one Noor Elahi. Amir’s and Noor’s national identity card numbers are also said to have been obtained. At the house where the family is said to live, a man calling himself Sultan said he was Muhammad Amir’s father-in-law.

One villager told the correspondent that Faridkot was an active recruiting ground for Lashkar-e-Tayyaba. “We know that boy is from Faridkot. We knew from the first night. They brainwash our youth about jihad, there are people who do it in this village. It is so wrong.”

Kasab, interrogated in custody after the attacks, reportedly told Indian security officials that he came from a place called Faridkot in the Punjab province. His father was named as Muhammad Amir, married to a woman named Noor.

“The Observer has managed to obtain an electoral roll for Faridkot, which falls under union council number 5, tehsil (area) Depalpur, district Okara,” the report said. “The list of 478 registered voters shows a Muhammad Amir, married to Noor Elahi, living in Faridkot. Amir’s national identity card number is given as 3530121767339, and Noor’s is 3530157035058.”

The reporter could not meet Amir, the father, but said: “Villagers eventually told us that he and his wife, Noor, had been mysteriously spirited away earlier in the week.”

Ajmal had little education, according to locals. “If he did indeed speak fluent English, as claimed in Indian press reports, he would have had to have learnt that after he left the village,” the report said. khalid hasan/daily times monitor
