Trent i Pakistan

Hans Rustad

Indisk politi sier ter­ro­ris­tene som angrepe Mum­bai til­hø­rer Laskhar e-Taiba og er blitt trent i måneds­vis i Pakis­tan. Hvis Pakis­tan ikke sam­ar­bei­der fullt ut i opp­kla­rin­gen, kan kon­se­kven­sene bli alvorlige.

Two senior Indian investi­ga­tors told Reu­ters on con­dition of ano­ny­mity that evi­dence from the inter­ro­ga­tion of Azam Amir Kasav, the only gun­men of the 10 not kil­led by com­man­dos, cle­arly showed that Pakis­tani mili­tants had a hand in the attack.

The clean-shaven, 21-year-old with flu­ent Eng­lish was pho­to­grap­hed during the attack wea­ring a black t-shirt emblazo­ned with the Ver­sace logo. He has said his team took orders from “their com­mand in Pakis­tan,” police offi­ci­als said.

The trai­ning was orga­nized by the Lashkar-e-Taiba mili­tant group, and con­ducted by a for­mer mem­ber of the Pakis­tani army, a police offi­cer close to the inter­ro­ga­tion told Reu­ters on con­dition of ano­ny­mity because he was not aut­ho­rized to speak.

They under­went trai­ning in seve­ral pha­ses, which inclu­ded trai­ning in hand­ling weapons, bomb making, sur­vi­val stra­te­gies, sur­vi­val in a marine environ­ment and even die­tary habits,” anot­her senior offi­cer told Reuters.

The Pakistani-based Lashkar-e-Taiba made its name figh­ting Indian rule in Kash­mir but was also bla­med for an attack on the Indian par­lia­ment in 2001 that brought the nuclear-armed neigh­bors close to war the next year.

Lash­kar had had close links to Pakistan’s mili­tary spy agency in the past, security experts say, alt­hough the govern­ment in Isla­ma­bad insists it too is figh­ting the group and other Isla­mist mili­tants based on its soil.
