Islamabad: Pak arrests 3 in Mumbai attacks probe: report
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan security forces have arrested three people from a charity linked to the group India accuses of involvement in the Mumbai attacks, citing an official foreign news agency reported Monday. “Three people were rounded up in a brief operation against the charity Jamaat–ud–Dawa,” the official said. “The raid was carried out to get details about the activities of the group in Kashmir in the wake of allegations by India that Let (Lashkar–e-Taiba) was using Pakistani territory for training.”
The arrests took place Sunday at the charity’s offices outside Muzaffarabad. Jamaat-ud-Dawa key leader Zaki–ur–Rehman said to be among three arrested persons.
Senior government officials refused to confirm or deny the arrests.
