Lashkar admits its role in Mumbai terrorist strikes

The Lashkat-e-Taiba (LeT) has for the first time admitted its involvement in the 26/11 terrorist attacks on Mumbai. LeT operations commander Zarar Shah has accepted Lashkar's role.

This is based on telephonic intercepts of a call between Shah and the terrorists involved in the attack at Hotel Taj. Shah was arrested in Pakistan after mounting pressure from the United States early this month.

He was arrested from the Pakistani occupied Kashmir (PoK). This is another in the series of recent disclosures about Pak links into the Mumbai attack. Pakistan's National Security Advisor had recently said that Ajmar Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist caught alive in Mumbai, could be a Pak citizen.

This was a departure from the earlier stand. Pakistan was earlier vehemently denying that any Pakistani citizen was involved in the attacks at Hotel Taj, CST, Nariman Point and Oberai-Trident. US has also asked Pakistan to extradite Ziaur Rahman Lakhvi alias Chacha to India.
