It wouldn’t be a huge surprise. “Indian forces arrest militants, including Pakistani,” from News.com.au, November 28 (thanks to JE):
INDIAN security forces have arrested three militants, including a Pakistani national, inside a Mumbai hotel attacked by a group of gunmen.
Quoting official sources, the Press Trust of India news agency reported the arrests were made inside the five-star Taj Mahal hotel, one of several targets in the city stormed by militants yesterday.
The report identified the Pakistani national as Ajmal Amir Kamal, a resident of Faridkot, Multan, in Pakistan.
It also said the militants were members of Lashkar-e-Toiba – a Pakistan-based group best known for an assault on the Indian parliament in 2001.
The report said the Pakistani detainee told Indian investigators that the group of 12 militants had been dropped off by a merchant vessel 10 nautical miles outside Indian waters, and had reached Mumbai in a small speedboat.
Earlier, A senior military official blamed Pakistani militants for the multiple attacks in Mumbai, killing at least 125 people and injuring hundreds more.
“They are from across the border and perhaps from Faridkot, Pakistan. They tried to pretend that they were from Hyderabad,” said Major General R.K. Hooda, who is leading the military operation to flush out the extremists.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh also said the militants had come from “outside the country” – a thinly veiled reference to arch-rival and fellow nuclear-armed nation Pakistan.
He also warned in his televised address against “neighbours” who provide a haven to anti-India militants.
Pakistan’s defence minister immediately said his country had played no role in the attacks.
“In previous cases they have acted like this, but later it all proved wrong,” Ahmed Mukhtar said.
“We are very much positive that Pakistan is not involved in this.”
India has in the past frequently accused Pakistan of backing Islamic militants active in India.
Militant Pakistani group Lashkar-e-Taiba, which is fighting Indian rule in Kashmir and is best known for an assault on the Indian parliament in 2001, also denied any involvement….
