Pakistan probing 26/11 suspect over financial aid to LeT men
"The FIA (Federal Investigation Agency) has arrested Sufyan Zafar recently and is interrogating him for his role in providing financial assistance to the accused of the Mumbai attack - who are lodged in the Adiala Jail Rawalpindi," FIA special prosecutor Chaudhry Azhar said on Friday. He said Zafar was absconding after being declared proclaimed offender in the Mumbai case. A resident of Gujrawala district of Punjab, some 80km from Lahore, Zafar is among 21 other absconding suspects wanted in this high-profile case.
"Zafar will be indicted in the Mumbai case after completion of the investigation," the FIA official said.
A Pakistani anti-terrorism court has charged seven Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) activists - its operations commander Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi, Abdul Wajid, Mazhar Iqbal, Hamad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jameel Riaz, Jamil Ahmed and Younis Anjum - with abetment to murder, attempted murder, planning and executing the Mumbai attack. The case has been underway in the country for more than six years.
