Fahim Ansari is singing, and Pakistan is facing the music.
Arrested in the Rampur Central Reserve Police Force camp attack case, Ansari -- now in the Mumbai Anti-Terrorist Squad's custody --says he was trained in Pakistan and the deadly Mumbai attack was planned by the Lashkar-e-Tayiba [Images].
The ATS, which brought Ansari from Uttar Pradesh [Images] on a transit remand, told the police that apart from the Taj and the Trident, they also wanted to target aircraft in India.
Admitting that he had surveyed the Mumbai airport, Ansari said that fidayeens planned storming the airport and target aircrafts.
Ansari said that he met LeT leaders Zaki-Ur-Rehman Laqvi and Yusuf Muzzamil for the first time in March, 2007. A Mumbai resident, Ansari left for Dubai in search of a job.
"After the survey, I shot videos of those locations and also prepared sketches. I handed these videos and sketches over to Sabahuddin who I met at Nepal. It was he who in turn passed it on to the Lashkar."
