Terror arrests 'point at Pakistan' after angry wife leads Indian police to group
NEW DELHI // The capture of six alleged members of a terrorist cell this week has provided further evidence of Pakistani involvement in a series of recent bomb attacks across India.
One of those captured, Muhammad Adil, 40, is from Karachi and told investigators he was trained by Jaish-e-Mohammad, a Pakistan-based militant organisation.
He is the first Pakistani to be linked to the Indian Mujahideen, and undermines claims from Pakistan that the perpetrators are entirely "home-grown" Indians.
Pakistani militant groups, including the Lashkar-i-Taiba and Harkat-ul-Jihad-Al-Islami, were also involved in the Karachi Project. The relocation of the Indian Mujahideen's leadership to Pakistan marked a new stage in the group's strategy. The group no longer issues emails claiming responsibility - a tactic which is thought to have helped investigators track them down in 2008.
We better be ready to kick ass seriously. Now that the porkis have "other" problems.
"The old strategy of close-knit cells planning and carrying out these attacks within India is no longer viable," said Ajai Sahni, of the Institute for Conflict Management in New Delhi. "The focus now is on survival. The militants are waiting to see what happens in Afghanistan - till then, they just need to stay alive to keep money and recruits coming in."
