New Delhi: Former Pakistan National Security Adviser (NSA) Mahmud Ali Durrani on Monday said that 2008 Mumbai terror attacks were carried out by a terror group based in Pakistan.
“26/11 Mumbai strike, carried out by a terror group based in Pakistan, was a classic trans-border terrorist event”, he added.
“Today, terrorism is a serious global threat, which needs to be defeated by a well-considered strategy both at the national and international levels,” Durrani said.
India had earlier this month asked Pakistan to reinvestigate the 2008 Mumbai terror attack case and put on trial Jammat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed who is currently under house arrest in Lahore under the anti-terrorism law.
The attacks killed 166 people, including 18 security personnel and a few foreigners. Ajmal Kasab, the lone terrorist who was caught alive by the security forces was hanged in November, 2012.
