The Mumbai [Images] Anti Terrorist Squad has picked up more clues of the Pakistani army being linked to terror training and also the Mumbai terror strikes of 26/11.
According to Sabahuddin -- the prime accused in the attack on the Central Reserve Police Force camp in Rampur and the attack on the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore -- the Pakistani army ensured that the new recruits had a safe passage into Lashkar-e-Tayiba's [Images] camps.
Sabahuddin, while explaining his journey into jihad, told interrogators that he decided to tread this horrific path in the year 2002.
'Once we entered Pakistan, we were stopped by members of the Pakistani army. We were asked about our background and details. We said we were fighting in Kashmir on behalf of the LeT. Our names were taken down and later registered by the Pakistani Army which then called for a person who was supposed to take us to the LeT camp. A few hours later, he guided us to the Forward Kahota camp of the LeT. Once at the camp, we were received by the commander of the camp, Abu Abdullah Ghazi, and later training was imparted to us.'
Further evidence of the Pakistani army link is based on Intelligence Bureau intercepts and also the statements of Ajmal Kasab. He had mentioned during his interrogation that the Pakistani Navy had imparted naval training to the LeT operatives.
