India: New Evidence Pakistan Aided Planner of Mumbai Attacks
India’s home minister on Wednesday said there was new evidence of Pakistani state support for the 2008 Mumbai attacks, citing information provided by Abu Jindal, an Indian man suspected of being one of the planners.
The Indian authorities say that Abu Jindal, who was recently captured by the Indian police, and five others guided the Mumbai attacks from a “control room” in Karachi, Pakistan.
The Indian authorities say they have recordings of phone conversations during the attack that included Mr. Jindal’s voice.
On Wednesday, Rehman Malik, a senior adviser to the Pakistani president on interior issues, denied the new charges. “Why are you blaming Pakistan?” he said at a news conference. “He is your citizen. You fail to control your citizen.”
