India: Pakistan Behind Mumbai Attacks

From those lovers of terror at Reuters:

Pakistan group behind Mumbai blasts – police

Sat Sep 30, 2006

MUMBAI (Reuters) – Indian police said on Saturday they had found evidence that Pakistan-based Islamist militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba carried out the July 11 serial blasts in Mumbai and Pakistan’s military spy agency was behind the plot.

"We have solved the July 11 bombings case. The whole attack was planned by Pakistan’s ISI and carried out by Lashkar-e-Taiba and their operatives in India," A.N. Roy, Mumbai’s police chief, told a news conference…

The Indian announcement came a day after Mumbai police said they had arrested four more people in connection with the attacks on rush-hour commuter trains and stations.

The new arrests took the total number of people in custody for their alleged role in the blasts to 15, Roy said.

They include an engineer, a journalist, a computer software professional and a doctor.

A total of seven blasts ripped through commuter trains and platforms in India’s financial hub and home of Bollywood cinema…

The Pakistani government and Lashkar have denied any role in the attacks and Islamabad offered to help with investigations.

I wonder if Musharraf mentioned this in his book?
