New Delhi: Suspecting involvement of locals
in 26/11, Pakistan has sought from India the interrogation
reports of two terrorists Fahim Ansari and Sabahuddin held in
connection with the terror attack while giving details of the
probe conducted by it.

In the 36-page dossier, that contains some annexures,
Pakistan has informed India about the case details of five
terrorists, including Lashkar-e-Taiba commander and
"mastermind" Zaki-ur Rahman Lakhvi, who have been arrested,
sources said.

Besides Lakhvi, the arrested Pakistanis have been
identified as Hammad Amin Sadiq, Mazhar Iqbal alias Abu Al
Qama, Abdul Wajid alias Zarrar Shah and Shahid Jamil Riaz.

All the five had provided logistic and other kinds of
support to the 10 Mumbai attackers, nine of whom were killed
during the gunfights with security personnel. Ajmal Amir
Kasab, the only surviving terrorist, was arrested.

Lakhvi has been identified as "commander of LeT" and the
"mastermind of terrorist attacks on Mumbai", Pakistan has
noted, agreeing with India`s contention.

Sadiq has been identified as "facilitator of funds and
hideouts" for the Mumbai attackers, Zarrar Shah as the
"facilitator and expert in computer networks", Riaz as
"facilitator through funding".

Details about 13 other absconding accused are also

Mustaq, Naeem, Shakoor, Salfi, Usman and Shakil Ahmad were the
crew members of `Al Hussaini` or `Al Fouz`.

elements" in the Mumbai attacks.

who examined the GPS and Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP)
used during the Mumbai attacks.
