Arrested LeT operative Madani has links with Saeed: Chidambaram

By Super Admin

New Delhi, June 5 (ANI): Home Minister P. Chidambaram on Friday said that the arrested terrorist Mohammad Umer Madani has links with Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) and Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed.

"The Man who is arrested in New Delhi does have links with Hafiz Saeed. The arrest of this person is a measure of the good intelligence and good investigative work done by our police and intelligence agencies. In fact, we should compliment the Delhi Police for this," Chidambaram said.

Fifty-two-year-old Madani was arrested near the Qutab Minar last evening.

Madani is also learnt to be the main financier of the LeT through hawala fundings. He is a Pak citizen who was based in Nepal for a year.

Speaking on the Mumbai terror attacks, he said that there is no need for setting up a commission of inquiry into 26/11.

"The government has full facts on the attacks and Pradhan Committee has already looked into it," he said.

"I am amused with the demand of commission of inquiry into 26/11. Why didn't the BJP order an inquiry after Kandahar or Parliament attack?" the Minister added. (ANI)
