The list containing 49 fugitives along with dossiers was handed over by G K Pillai, Indian Home Secretary to his Pakistani counterpart, Qamar Zaman Choudhary as early as Mar 28, 2011.
The names of ex-majors include Sajid Majid aka Sajid Mir, also referred to as Wasi Bhai who apparently directed the head shot on Nariman House hostages on the fateful day of the Mumbai attacks. The other names are Abdur Rehman Hashim Syed aka Pasha, the one who handles the Indian Mujahideen through his Karachi Project; ex-SSG trooper Illyas Kashmiri, the handler of al-Qaida' s 313 brigade. The other two serving majors handled LeT's David Coleman Headley for Pakistan"s secret services, ISI.
Headley"s interrogation had revealed animosity between Pasha and Sajid Mir and is believed that Mir had launched the 26/11 attacks in an attempt to upstage Pasha. The Indian Mujahideen particularly targeting India was born out of LeT. Mir was also involved in LeT"s terror training camps.
