Pak-Based Group Behind 26/11 Mumbai Attack: Ex-Pakistan National Security Advisor Mahmud Ali Durrani

26/11 Mumbai attack was carried out by Pakistan-based group, says their ex-NSA: report

New Delhi:  The 2008 Mumbai terror attack that killed 166 people including many foreigners was carried out by Pakistan-based terror group, said their former National Security Advisor Mahmud Ali Durrani, reported news agency ANI.

"I hate to admit that the 26/11 Mumbai attack carried out by a terror group in Pakistan is a classic trans-border terrorist event," said Mr Durrani, who was speaking at the 19th Asian Security Conference held at the Institute of Defence Studies and Analyses in Delhi.

Mr Durrani was the NSA when 10 Pakistani terrorists sailed into Mumbai on November 26, 2008 and killed 166 Indians including many foreigners. Nine of the attackers were killed and lone survivor Ajmal Kasab was captured and later hanged in 2012.

He also said that the mastermind of the attack, Lashkar-e-Taiba chief, Hafiz Saeed has "no utility for Pakistan and strong action must be taken" against him.
