Mumbai Attacks : LeT commander confesses complicity
Irrefutable evidence that the Mumbai terror attacks originated from Pakistan has been gathered by the US Intelligence agencies, when top LeT commander Zarar Shah has confessed the group’s involvement. The US provided Islamabad with the tape of a conversation his associate Zakiur Rahman Lakhvi had with the gunmen in Mumbai.
The fresh evidence that cornered Pakistan and nailed its denials on involvement of its nationals behind the November 26 attacks also saw it coming under tremendous pressure from the US which took an aggressive position asking Islamabad to extradite Lakhvi to India, the operations commander of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).
Both Shah and Lakhvi were among the LeT and Jamaat-ud-Dawah(JuD) activists captured during a crackdown by Pakistani security forces near Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, on December 7 following mounting international pressure.
