Terrorist Sought By India Lives in Mumbai

Posted by yourpakistan on May 18, 2011


A man whose name features prominently among 50 alleged terrorists India wants from Pakistan is living in Mumbai and regularly reports to a court that gave him bail, The Times of India reported on Tuesday.

Home Minister P. Chidambaram acknowledged what the media described an embarrassing lapse but disowned responsibility for preparing the list. It was his ministry that handed over the names to Pakistan in March and made them public recently.

Pakistan would perhaps be desperately looking for Wazhul Khan had his name not been made public, which triggered the media’s curiosity about the who’s who on the terror list.

Mr Khan was arrested last year for his alleged role in the 2003 Mulund train blasts in Mumbai. Reports said he has been living in the city suburb of Thane with his mother, wife and children, after he was let out on bail.

Local reports described the discovery of Mr Wazhul Qamar Khan in Mumbai as “an acute embarrassment to India”.

Police said Mr Khan is an accused in the 2003 Vile-Parle and Ghatkopar blasts besides the 2002 Mumbai Central station blasts. Some Indian commentators expressed the fear that the error could give Pakistan a publicity stick to beat India with.

India had on Wednesday come out with the list of 50 ‘most wanted fugitives’ hiding in Pakistan. They include underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, alleged Mumbai terror attack mastermind and Lashkar-e-Taiba founder Hafiz Saeed and dreaded terrorist Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi.

The list has Saeed on top, followed by Major Iqbal, a suspected serving Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) officer, who also figures in the FBI indictment in a Chicago court in connection with the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
