Mumbai, Nov.26 (ANI): Experts say that the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), the Pakistan-based group that staged the Mumbai terrorist strikes of last year that claimed 166 lives, remains a threat not only in India, but also beyond.

According to The Times, in India, it is believed that Lashkar retains strong networks in Mumbai, Gujarat, Agra, Hyderabad and Uttar Pradesh.

A recent report published by the Combating Terrorism Centre at the US Military Academy at West Point said: "In short, the threat of LeT-directed and LeT-supported terrorism against India remains high."

A year on, and the security threat to Mumbai remains high. Confidence in the authorities' ability to prevent another atrocity, however, does not.

The five-star hotels have a heavier and more visible security presence. Indian officials claim to have foiled six Lashkar terrorist plots against Indian targets in the past year - two in Indian-controlled Kashmir, and one in Delhi. (ANI)
