Lahore bombings planned in Afghanistan

Lahore bombings planned in Afghanistan

LAHORE – In a major breakthrough, the intelligence agencies have nabbed the mastermind of Lahore blasts and his close aide in a pre-dawn raid in southern Punjab, sources concerned disclosed, adding that the attacks had been crafted at an Indian consulate in Afghanistan a couple of months ago.

Qari Muzammal, the close aide of the mastermind and a commander of the banned outfit, has confessed to the investigators that India provided cash and ammunition to his group through its consulates in Kandahar and Jalalabad to carry out attacks in Lahore.
The security agencies arrested the mastermind of the Lahore blasts, his crony Qari Muzammal and three foreigners during the successful operation. The sources, however, did not disclose the name of the mastermind and said he was being interrogated under tight security. It is said that the culprit had just reached a remote district of southern Punjab when the security agencies carried out raids in the wee hours of Saturday, during which important evidence besides computer record, CDs and banned literature was also seized.

“He directed the Lahore RA Bazaar attacks from Faisalabad,” a source privy to the investigators said, adding that the attacks on Special Investigation Agency (SIA) building in Model Town and RA Bazaar were interconnected.

The mastermind of Lahore bombings left Faisalabad after local TV channels started airing the footage of the blasts, while he had directed the SIA building attack from Chakwal. The security agencies traced his whereabouts after intercepting phone calls he was making to his group members in the tribal region near Afghan border.

In last December, a top Indian government official visited Kabul and met Qari Muzammal, who had fled to Afghanistan via Balochistan after the GHQ attacks in Rawalpindi. Two weeks ago, he infiltrated into tribal areas from Pak-Afghan border after a short visit to Mumbai, where he met top Indian officials and got brief training.

  1. This is history repeating it self. We all remember how India and RAW conducted several terrorist attacks on civilian centers in the end days of the 1st Afghan war just before they were packing their bags. The same thing is happening now.

    What is our government in Islamabad doing to highlight India’s terrorist activities in Pakistan in international media? Are these NRO’s too busy making money?

    All it takes is Zardari addressing a n international news conference, statement style, showing the investigation results on how Indian state is a sposor of terrorism.


    • Zardari can not do it, simply because you can not call a press conference to whine about something you yourself have been doing with impunity for last several decades !


      • No, you are fundamentally wrong and a victim of your own hatefull media. Pakistan and its state institutiond has never cunducted terrorusm against civillians in India and Muslim majority Kashmir is a disputed territory not part of the Repubic of India.

        But how easy of you to ignore the worlds largest terrorist infiltration in East Pakistan in 71 by India, the occupation of Baltistan’s Siachen, the water terrorism, the training and terrorist support in Balochistan, bombing of Samjota Express train, the ruthless killings of 52 fully packed trains in 47…. A list which is never
        ending simply does not exist in your limited terrorist mind.

        While we have it lets not forget the illegal occupation of Junagarh as well. A state who signed to join Pakistan.


  2. The Blogger has not indicated the reference of the news and therefore one can not quote it. I thing blogger should indicate his source of news so that we may be able to share it with others. Hadith Nabvi is ” It is enough proof for one to be liar if one does not verify the news before quoting it”


    • Nothing repeat nothing can satisfy confused and petit minds like you.


      • THERE IS NOTHING IN WRONG IN ASKING THE SOURCE OF THIS NEWS CONSIDERING THE PAST OF MR.ZAID HAMID.


  3. We should support naxalites in the east, tamils in south and sikhs in north of indian federation and should train them to make IEDs and other explosives so that we can return the favour to india( slumdogs)


    • Ur expertise and favor are returned in kind by the Talibans. Now go get a life or get lost in some streets of Lahore, Ur well trained taliban will do the rest beautifully..


      • @fake Ultra Nationalist

        You mean Taliban should train Naxal,Sikh and Tamil to finish India as they have done to USSR.And they can do this job beautifully.


  4. INDIA WANTS TO ANNIHILLATE EVEN ISRAEL,USA AND BRITAIN AND BLAME THAT ON MUSLIMS EVEN IF MUSLIMS ARE PEACE LOVING.


    • Peace Loving…. LMFAO


  5. plz read the daily jang main heading regarding raw involve in lahore blast. now , pakistan should support taliban for vacation of india from kabul . pakistan should support sikhs , naxalites to integrate india ( inshallah) ameen


  6. The indian thugs always attack Zaid Hamid and the legend Gen. Hamid Gul on this and every forum in the world because they know that they are patriots and tell the truth about the Hindu RAW, CIA and MOSSAD ghundagardi and covert activities in Pakistan. They also expose these thugs and their moves in our region and that’s why the hindus always come with different names saying bad things about these two but they should know they are the heros and InshaAllah they will remain the same. As far as the terrorist activities inside pakistan are concerned they are always carried out by RAW in the past and currently done by RAW-CIA-MOSSAD so for people who want to know the source of the news should know that who else is doing this innocent killing in pakistan and Afghanistan. Every thing happening to Indians which is usually self staged indian activity anyway but blamed on Pakistan and ISI. Can’t you people see recently there was a blast on indians in Afghanistan and many pakistanis have been killed in Afghanistan and Pakistan through terror activities. So who would be doing that to the pakistanis in Afghanistan and pakistan. Is it Afghani Taliaban who would be doing that to their own brothers? Certainly not and off course it will be hindu RAW-CIA MOSSAD axis of evil doing that to us. Allah will InshaAllah show these innocent killers and they will taste what they are doing to others.


  7. I found some a news item in Jang dated 14.3.10
    http://jang.com.pk/jang/mar2010-daily/14-03-2010/main.htm

    But sadly didn’t find the same news item in The News. Please add more links for news items that appear on differnt newspapers below to consolidate this.


  8. Zardari and his cronies are too busy plundering this nation, to bother about Indian terrorism. His whole family including his sisters are on a war footing in their pursuit of wealth. This shameless family’s hunger for wealth can never be fulfilled. Owning one sugar mill was not enough, they now own over a dozen in Sindh. They have acquired tens of thousands of acres of agriculture land in Sindh, as a result they now are stealing the water of downstream farmers with impunity. Zardari is against Kalabagh Dam because it doesn’t affect him. In this period of drought, his lands have all the water they need.
    We must make a Pakistan where criminals such as Zardari are shot, rather than rewarded for their crimes.

  11. Lahore High Court directs ATC to frame charges against Mumbai attack accused
    By ANI – October 28th, 2009

    RAWALPINDI – The Lahore High Court’s Rawalpindi bench has directed the Anti-Terrorism Court to frame charges against all the seven Mumbai attack suspects, who are currently locked in the Adiala jail.

    Hearing a petition filed by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the division bench asked the Anti-Terrorism Court-I (ATC-1) judge Malik Muhammad Akram Awan to frame charges against all the accused, The Daily Times reports.

    Lakhvi, in his petition, urged the court to discontinue the hearing of the cases filed against him and the seven other militants.

    While Lakhvi is accused of masterminding the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, others, including LeT’s communications expert Zarar Shah, Abu al-Qama, Hamad Amin Sadiq and Shahid Jamil Riaz have been charged for facilitating and managing funds and locating hideouts for the attackers in Rawalpindi.


  12. Islamabad, Oct 24(ANI):

    Pakistan on Saturday appointed Judge Malik Muhammad Akram Awan to replace Judge Baqir Ali Rana of Rawalpindi’s Anti-Terrorism Court 2 hearing the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks case.

    Rana had earlier approached the High Court with an application for the case to be transferred out of his court citing “unavoidable reasons.”

    According to reports, Rana had backed out of the case after receiving death threats from Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) and pressure from the Government.

    The anti-terrorism court is conducting the trial of seven suspects linked with the Mumbai attacks, including LeT operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi.

    Earlier in the day, the Lahore High court had shifted the trial following Justice Rana’s refusal to continue as the judge. The case has now been scheduled for further hearing on October 31.


  13. Evidence filed against LeT’s Lakhvi in 26/11 trial

    Islamabad, Jan 30 (IANS) Pakistani investigators Saturday filed evidence against Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and his six associates for their alleged role in masterminding the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

    The dossier of evidences was presented in a high security special anti-terrorism court in a Rawalpindi prison, according to sources privy to the development.

    “Public prosecutors submitted the evidence against the seven accused before judge Malik Mohammed Akram Awan,” said a lawyer, who didn’t want to be identified because it was an in-camera trial.

    The accused are currently in the Adiala prison and the trial is being conducted there only for security reasons. The seven accused are: Lakhvi, Zarar Shah, Abu al-Qama, Hamad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jamil Riaz, Jamil Ahmed and Younus Anjum.

    The sources refused to divulge details but said the government had substantial evidence to prove Lakhvi and his associates’ involvement in the Mumbai carnage which killed 166 people. Nine of the 10 terrorists who had perpetrated the carnage were also killed. The men had allegedly sailed into the financial capital of India from the Pakistani port city of Karachi.

    The trial was adjourned soon after the public prosecutors filed the evidence, the sources said. The next hearing is on Feb 13. The accused were last year charged with planning and helping to execute the Mumbai assault, which has put in freeze bilateral ties between India and Pakistan.


  14. Pak courts adjourns 26/11 trial again, next hearing on March 6
    PTI, Feb 20, 2010

    ISLAMABAD: The hearing in the Mumbai attack case against LeT’s operations chief Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and six other suspects could not take place today in a Pakistani anti-terror court in Rawalpindi in view of local Bar Council elections and the trial will now resume on March 6.

    The proceedings, scheduled for today, could not take place because of the Bar Council elections, sources said. They said it was also not possible to schedule the hearing for next Saturday on February 27 as it would be a public holiday in view of Eid-e Milad-un Nabi, Prophet Mohammad’s birth anniversary.

    So, the next hearing in the Mumbai attack case had now been set for March 6, the sources said.


  15. Lawyers for accused in 26/11 demand Kasab be brought to Pak
    Islamabad, Mar 20 (PTI)

    Lawyers for LeT’s operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and six more accused in the the Mumbai attacks case today demanded at an anti-terror court that Ajmal Kasab be brought from India to Pakistan to face trial with the other suspects.

    The defence lawyers made this argument in the court of judge Malik Mohd Akram Awan in Rawalpindi, which was hearing an application from the prosecution for Kasab and Fahim Ansari to be declared “proclaimed offenders” or fugitives.

    Kasab, a Pakistani, was captured alive during the 26/11 attacks while nine other terrorists were gunned down. Ansari is another accused in India’s Mumbai attack case. The lawyers argued that Kasab was not a fugitive as he was not “wilfully” avoiding the Pakistani court.

    Kasab was in the custody of Indian authorities since the Mumbai attacks in November 2008 and this was known to the prosecution when a case was registered in Pakistan in January 2009, they said. Lakhvi’s counsel Khwaja Sultan told the court that Pakistan government should approach its Indian counterpart to bring Kasab to Pakistan to be tried along with the other accused.

    “The court today heard arguments from both the prosecution and the defence,” Shahbaz Rajut, one of the defence lawyers, told PTI. Sources said the court adjourned the matter till March 27 when the judge is expected to give a decision on the application filed by the prosecution. The filing of the application has held up the recording of testimony of witnesses to the anti-terror court.

    The application became necessary after the Lahore High Court recently ruled that Kasab’s trial could not be separated from that of the seven accused.
    The High Court gave its ruling in response to a petition filed by Lakhvi. Apart from Lakhvi, the suspects in the case in Pakistan are Zarar Shah, Abu al-Qama, Hamad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jamil Riaz, Jamil Ahmed and Younas Anjum.
