(Reuters) – Delhi police have arrested alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant Abu Hamza, who is suspected of helping to plan the militant rampage through Mumbai in 2008 that killed 166 people, Foreign Minister S.M. Krishna said on Monday.

New Delhi blames Pakistan militant group LeT for the attacks that stunned India and shattered fragile relations with nuclear-armed neighbour Pakistan. Indian-born Abu Hamza is a suspected member of the LeT, local media reported on Monday.

Authorities believe Hamza is the voice of a previously unidentified man who was taped speaking by phone from Pakistan to the militants involved in the Mumbai attacks. He is also said to have coached the attackers in speaking Hindi, according to the reports.

  1. If true, they should extract as much intel from that filthy koranimal that they can get BUT they better not tell our admin any of it.

  2. Pakistan has nukes. Pakistan was stupid enough to give nukes to Saudi-Arabia, instead of using nukes to get the Saudi oil for free. In Saudi-Arabia, Pakistani people are constantly abused. When do Pakistanis understand that their Islamic religion means slavery to Saudi-Arabia?
