A Pakistani suspect in the 2008 Mumbai attacks has been arrested in Zimbabwe as he tried to cross into World Cup host South Africa, police and state media say.
Imran Muhammad, 33, was arrested at the Beitbridge border post along with another Pakistani national, the state-run Herald newspaper reported on Saturday, saying Muhammad was wanted for the Mumbai attacks.
“Indications were that… Muhammad (is) wanted in Pakistan (as he) was allegedly involved in the terror attacks that rocked Mumbai, India in November 2008,” the daily said.
Police spokesman Wayne Bvudzijena said the two were arrested on June 20 after they were found using fake Kenyan passports.
“Investigations are still being carried out through Interpol to see who these people are,” he told AFP.
“We will have to get information from the Pakistani authorities to see what they have on these two.”
