37 Pakistanis financed terror attacks: Police

Mumbai police cracks 7/11 blasts case

Investigations into last year's Delhi blasts have shown that 37 Pakistani nationals were financing terror networks across India.

'Thirty-seven people - all residents of Pakistan and active members of terror outfit Lashkar-e-Tayiba - funded many operations in India, which involved heavy loss of life and property', reads a Delhi Police Special Cell chargesheet on the blasts that shook Delhi's markets on the even of Diwali and Id last year.

Huge amounts through hawala and foreign remittances were sent to LeT operative and blast accused Tariq Ahmed Dar's accounts in Delhi and Srinagar from these 37 sources to fund terror strikes, especially the Delhi blasts, police said.

Probe agencies are studying the probability that the same sources had funded the July 11 train blasts in Mumbai. "Many parallels can be drawn from both cases. The nature of funding largely shows a similar pattern...We are still trying to know whether the same sources had supplied the money for both strikes," a senior Delhi police official said.

Dar had disclosed to the police that the flow of funds from Pakistan was controlled by Abu Ozefa, a Pakistani national and divisional commander of the LeT, who was killed in Kashmir, the chargesheet says.

He disclosed details of clandestine meetings held with Ozefa in a forest near Harwan area of Srinagar to exchange funds, police said. 'Financial dealings were strictly on cash basis, that too in dollars or riyals', the chargesheet said.
