Will hawala operators help cops crack 7/11

August 03, 2006 12:46 IST

In an attempt to crack the source of foreign funding to the July 11 train bombings, the police will seek the help of hawala operators in the city.

Explaining the move, the police said since it seized a large amount of foreign money allegedly received by a key arrested Lashkar-e-Tayiba operative.

Investigators suspect that the LeT module that executed the blasts received large funding from their patrons abroad and the money was routed through hawala operators in Mumbai and around.

The Anti-Terrorism Squad will try and trace the source of the illegitimate foreign money that has come into India in the past six months to one year, and check if it had landed in the hands of subversive elements, they said.

The police, thus, intends to trace more subversive elements.
