Mumbai, Feb 12 (IANS) Two Indian nationals have been arrested for providing support to the 26/11 terrorists and at least six Pakistanis are wanted for involvement in the terror attack, city Police Commissioner Hasan Gafoor said Thursday evening. Pakistan has been informed about the latest developments.
“Some people have been accused of giving support to the terrorists, including conducting the recce of the targeted sites and providing logistics support,” Gafoor told the media at his office here.
He said of the 16 Pakistanis involved in the Mumbai attack, nine were killed while one - Mohammed Ajmal Amir alias Kasab - has been arrested and six more are absconding.
Two Indians have been arrested, he said but declined to name them.
“We have also informed Pakistan about this,” Gafoor said.
According to Gafoor, the international links to the terror attack could stretch as far as Barcelona in Spain - endorsed by Pakistan earlier in the day.
He termed as a “big achievement for the Mumbai police and the whole country” Pakistan’s admission that a “part of the Mumbai terror attacks conspiracy was hatched in Pakistan”.
Pakistan’s acceptance of India’s charges has come as a big feather for the Mumbai police’s meticulous and professional investigations into the entire case.
