Former Pakistan National Security Adviser Mahmud Ali Durrani has admitted that 2008 Mumbai terror attacks+ were carried out by a terror group based in Pakistan.
“I hate to admit that the 26/11 Mumbai attack carried out by a terror group based in Pakistan on November 26, 2008, is a classic trans-border terrorist event,” said Durrani, who was the NSA when 10 Pakistani terrorists sailed into Mumbai and committed mayhem over three days.
This is the first admission by any high-ranking Pakistani official that confirms India’s stand that the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) plotted and executed the carnage nine years ago.
On November 26, 2008, ten Pakistani terrorists arrived by sea route and opened fire indiscriminately at people killing 166, including 18 security personnel, and injuring several others, besides damaging property worth crores.
The attack had begun on November 26 and lasted until November 29. Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, the Oberoi Trident, the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower, Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital, the Jewish community center were some of the places targeted by the terrorists.
