Islamabad: Eleven people wanted for the Mumbai terror attacks that left 166 people dead are on a terror list prepared by Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA). The country’s top Taliban leadership, however, isn’t mentioned in it, a media report said.
The list, also known as the `red book’, names 119 people including those involved in attacks on former premier Benazir Bhutto, former president Pervez Musharraf and on the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, the Dawn said quoting a web report.
Prepared in October 2009, the list includes names of 11 people wanted for the Mumbai attacks but there are no details on the bounty in case of their arrest.
Ten terrorists sneaked into Mumbai Nov 26, 2008 and went on a killing spree. One of the terrorists, Ajmal Amir Kasab, was arrested. The terror strike strained India-Pakistan relations.
The Dawn report said the list does not include names of prominent militant leaders from Swat and Fata region and there was no mention of the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan’s leadership.
The list includes the names of 25 wanted people from Punjab, 24 from Sindh and 18 from Balochistan.
