India Arrests 2 Men in Mumbai Terror Investigation

Two Indian men were arrested in the Mumbai Terrorist Attacks Investigation today.

The men illegally bought phone cards used by the terrorists in the Mumbai attacks.

The AP reported:

Police arrested two Indian men accused of illegally buying mobile phone cards used by the gunmen in the Mumbai attacks, police said Saturday — the first known arrests since the bloody siege ended.

It was not immediately clear whether the two had prior knowledge of the attacks, which killed 171 people. If they did, the arrests could represent evidence of homegrown ties to the attacks and be a blow to Indian officials who have blamed the massacre entirely on Pakistani extremists.

Police said another Indian citizen who was arrested in February in northern India carrying hand-drawn sketches of hotels, the train terminal and other sites that were later attacked was being brought to Mumbai for renewed questioning.

One of the arrested men, Tauseef Rahman, allegedly bought SIM cards by providing fake documents, including identification cards of dead people, senior police official Rajeev Kumar said Saturday in the eastern city of Calcutta.

UPDATE: Authorities reported that one of the two Indian men arrested may have been working undercover for the Indian government.

Two men were taken in by police for illegally buying mobile phone cards that were used by the gunmen in the recent hotel atrocities.

A senior police official has now told the AP news agency that one of the pair is a counter-insurgency officer who may have been on an undercover mission.

He named the officer as Mukhtar Ahmed and he is being held by police in Calcutta.
