The Indian government has prepared two versions of the dossier on the involvement of Pakistan-based outfits in the Mumbai terrorist attacks.
While the main one, consisting of 69 pages, was handed over to the 14 countries which have lost their citizens in the attacks, an edited version has been given to the rest of the world and, notably, Pakistan.
The dossier states that six of the 13 terrorists originally trained were sent to Kashmir on another operation. Could these six highly terrorists be part of the shootout that has been underway in Kashmir for the last days?
The Hindu newspaper, which has published the dossier, says this is the first systematic Indian presentation of what the investigations into the Mumbai attacks have revealed so far.
The dossier reveals that the e-mail sent by an outfit calling itself the Deccan Mujahideen [Images], claiming credit for the Mumbai attacks, resolved to a proxy server in Russia [Images], and server data indicated that Zarrar Shah, communication coordinator of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba [Images], had organised the creation of the new e-mail IDs in the evening of November 26, 2008, hours before the attacks began.
The dossier states that Ajmal Amir Kasab [Images], the lone terrorist to have been captured in the attacks, had made a photo-identification of the Lashkar's Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi as the one who had briefed them all before the terrorist strike at the Lashkar camps at Muzaffarabad and Azizabad and who he said was the mastermind behind the terrorist strike.
Apart from details of the telephone intercepts between the terrorists and their handlers in Pakistan during the terrorist strike, the dossier also points to the money trail linking the operatives to the purchase of the VOIP calling platform used by the handlers in order to mask their physical location.
