Srinagar, Nov 27 (IANS) The Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant group Thursday denied it had any links with those who carried out the Mumbai terror strikes in which over 100 people were killed.A caller identifying himself as Dr. Abdullah Ghaznavi called the local office of the Zee TV network and said the LeT had no links with the terror group that had owned responsibility for the Mumbai terror strikes.

“Let (Lashkar-e-Taiba) condemns such acts and we have no link with those responsible for such acts.

“Linking us with the strikes in Bombay (Mumbai) is an attempt to malign the ongoing freedom struggle in Kashmir.

“We demand an independent international inquiry into the incident so that the truth comes out before the whole World,” the caller said.

In what is Mumbai’s worst terror attack, at least 101 people, including a foreign tourist and three top police officers, were killed and over 250 injured when terrorists struck in a series of planned and synchronised gunfire and bomb attacks in the heart of India’s financial capital late Wednesday.
