The house where the Mumbai terror attackers and its planners camped before and after launching their deadly operation has been unearthed in Pakistan's Sindh province, a media report said on Sunday.

A large map of the world with Mumbai and the sea route to it marked out prominently, and newspapers, including those carrying stories about the November 26 Mumbai carnage, were found at the house, now sealed by investigators, Geo TV said.

The TV footage of the house, that is believed to have been used by the terrorists including Ajmal Amir Kasab [Images], the lone terrorist arrested during the attack on Mumbai, showed among other things a picture of a speed boat, equipment used in fishing vessels and a large amount of medicines.

The channel captured images of mattresses and blankets strewn around, in what it said were traces of a once well-furnished living quarter located in Dori, 40 kilometres from Karachi, from where the terrorists sailed for Mumbai.

Islamic literature was also found stacked in the house, it said. The caretaker of the now-deserted house told the channel that he was asked to stay away from the place.

Geo TV also quoted local residents as saying that they saw seven people residing in the house and using a motor launch.

After months of denial, Pakistan this week admitted that part of the conspiracy for the Mumbai terror attacks [Images] was hatched inside the country and said some of the suspects were in its custody.
