Rawalpindi, Apr.16 (ANI): One of the arrested suspects of the November 2008 Mumbai attacks, Shahid Jamil Riaz, has reportedly confessed to his involvement in providing logistic support to the attackers.

According to The Daily Times, Riaz’s statement was recorded by the Judicial Magistrate Ahmed Masood Janjua.

“Riaz’s statement was recorded under Section 164 of the Pakistan Penal Code, in which he confessed that he and his four accomplices, Hammad Amin Sadiq, Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, Abdul Wajid alias Zarar Shah and Mazhar Iqbal alias Abu Al Qama, assisted the Mumbai attackers and provided them logistic support to carry out the attacks,” sources said.

Riaz, a member of the banned terror outfit Lashkr-e-Taiyaba (LeT) was arrested by Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) last month.

However, Riaz’s counsel said that the court refused to record his client’s confession statement. (ANI)
