Indian Mujahideen's remote is in Pakistan: IB

The Mumbai police, who on Wednesday claimed to have achieved a breakthrough in the cases pertaining to the serial blasts at Ahmedabad [Images] and New Delhi [Images], also said that the dreaded Indian Mujahideen [Images] was being controlled from Pakistan and funded through hawala channels.
The Mumbai police named a person by the Amir Raza Khan, who is allegedly controlling the IM from Pakistan. Amir Raza Khan, according to the Intelligence Bureau, is a mafia don who used to operate from Bangladesh.
His name first surfaced during the attack at the American Centre at Kolkata and since then he has been elusive.
It is further said that Khan worked closely with two other HuJI operatives by the name Rasool Khan Party, a don formerly based in Gujarat and Ahmed Patangiya who was also residing at the same state before fleeing to Pakistan.
The arrest of Afzal Usman by the Mumbai police was the turning point in Wednesday's crackdown. Usman, according to the IB, was part of an organized crime gang and worked for Amir Raza Khan.
The cops are now probing the links between the IM and HuJI. The IB says that Abdus Subhan aka Tauqueer, who has fled the country, had close links with Shahid Bilal, the commander of HuJI (South India operations). It is said that Subhan was in constant touch with Bilal (before he was killed) and this indicates the close links between IM and the HuJI.
