Action after 14 years: Pakistan detains 26/11 Mumbai terror attack handler

Pakistan is alleged to detain Sajid Mir, a key member of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and also the man to blame for the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, after years of denying his existence and even asserting that he was dead.

Both the US and India are trying to find Mir for the last ten years. Mir was a part of the November 2008 siege, when a gaggle of 10 men distributed coordinated strikes on many sites in Mumbai. Six Americans were among the 170 victims of the phobia assault, who were of assorted nationalities.

According to Nikkei Asia, the dispute appears to possess reached a boiling point with Pakistan’s intention to get rid of itself from the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) global listing for supporting terrorism.

Hammad Azhar, the person to blame for talks with the international watchdog for the previous three years and also the former government minister of Pakistan under the recently overthrown government of Prime Minister Imran Khan, told the media outlet that Pakistan had taken actions against Mir and other terrorists that were “satisfactory” to the FATF.
