26/11: Interpol notice against 5 Pakistanis

The warrants were issued on the basis of disclosures made by David Headley.

New Delhi: National Investigation Agency (NIA) has secured an Interpol Red Corner Notice against five accused persons, including two serving Pakistani Army majors, for their alleged role in the Mumbai terror strike of 2008.

The Interpol issued the Red Corner Notice after securing a non-bailable warrant from the court Additional Sessions Judge here.

The warrants were issued on the basis of disclosures made by American national and Lashker-e-Toiba terrorist David Headley, who was extensively questioned by the NIA officials in June this year.

The Red Corner Notice has been issued against Major Sameer Ali, and Major Iqbal, both serving in the Pakistani Army, Illyas Kashmiri, an LeT terrorist, Sajid Majid and Syed Abdur Rehman Hashim.

The security agencies have already secured Red Corner notice against Lashker`s founder Hafeez Sayeed and his close aide Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi in connection with the 26/11 attacks that left over 160 people dead.

These people, according to NIA officials, had worked in close coordination with Headley in executing the nefarious plans of the Lashker for carrying out terror strikes in Mumbai.
