Complete Dossier of Terrorist Evidence Submitted to Pakistan
Mumbai, the commercial capital of India, came under a heinous terrorist attack on November 26, 2008.
The terrorist attacks took place at many locations, especially at CST Railway Station; the Leopold Cafe; Taj Hotel; Oberoi Trident Hotel; and Nariman House. 165 Persons (civilians and security personnel) lost their lives and 304 were injured. Among the civilians killed were 26 foreigners belonging to many nationalities (Annexure-I).
So starts the 46-page dossier of evidence submitted to Pakistan by the Government of India. The dossier of evidence was also presented to representatives of 14 countries whose citizens were killed by terrorists in Mumbai (Nov 26-29 2008).
You can download and read the entire dossier. The entire dossier found at many Indian news sites is uploaded as four PDF files.
The facts are presented in a chillingly, sterile manner. Like a doctor giving bad news to a patient, the Govt of India has provided damning evidence that the Pakistan will be forced to follow up and act on. As I write this, there is news that the Pakistan has already rejected the evidence! How does India respond?
In the dossier, the evidence gathered at the site, telephone intercepts as well as information gathered from the surviving terrorist is well stitched together to provide striking details of the entire operation: how the terrorists arrived in Mumbai from pakistan, broke up into five groups and how they dispersed into the city initiating 60 hours of terror.
Interrogation of the surviving terrorist provides information on how and where the terrorists were trained and who their handlers were. Clearly, pakistan could act on this information. But it would rather be known as a coddler, promoter and exporter of terrorism.
Based on waypoints in the GPS device recovered from the fishing trawler MV Kuber, the Police have recreated the entire map of the journey from Karachi, Pakistan to Badhwar Park, Colaba, Mumbai. These maps are provided as part of the evidence.
Early during the attack on the Taj Hotel, the police intercepted cell phone calls to and from the hotel. The terrorist’s handlers in pakistan were using VOIP virtual numbers for passing instructions to the terrorists. Based on the numbers shared by the terrorists, the security forces intercepted all calls from the three VOIP numbers (virtually based in Austria).
The virtual numbers based in Austria were setup with a US company named Callphonex through intermediaries and funding which came from Pakistan. All the details are provided, including the pakistani passport no of one of the operatives.
From these intercepted calls, it became clear to the police that the handlers of the terrorists in pakistan were passing on information available in the media back to the terrorists. Some of the transcripts of these intercepted calls are also provided.
In this transcript recorded at the Oberoi Trident, the terrorists receive instructions to spare muslims and kill the remaining three hostages, including women. And chillingly, they applaud the sound of killing gunfire.
It is interesting these same cold bloodied, cowards would do this in the name of Allah and Islam. Why are the mullahs not issuing fatwas against using the name of Allah and Islam during these murders. If someone as much as draws a cartoon spoofing Islam or mohammed, would invite a barrage of fatwas and protests! Why not now? Is it perhaps, Islam does condone cowardly acts of violence? What happened to all those Muslim leaders who were protesting the removal of a muslim family from an airplane? Isn’t this more important to protest?
The terrorists at the Taj are updated on the death of the ATS officer and receive instructions on not to let the minister escape.
The handlers give instructions to the terrorist in the Jewish center at Nariman House on when to kill the hostages. Their political calculation is to drive a wedge between India and Israel! I think the opposite has happened and India will stand by Israel and vice-versa.
GPS devices recovered from the MV Kuber and the terrorists
Pictures of guns bearing markings of being manufactured in pakistan are presented. So also many of the personal effects of Pakistani origin belonging to the terrorists.
Obviously, all terrorist related stuff is Made in Pakistan.
