*British and Indians were spying on co-conspiritor Zarrar Shah.
*US warned Indians several times in months leading up to attacks.
*David Headley's Moroccan wife, Faiza Outalh, told The US Embassy three times, before the attacks, that he was a terrorist and was plotting against Mumbai.
*Lashkar-e-Taiba grew rapidly in the 1990s thanks to its powerful patron: the ISI.

*Zarrar Shah was fascinated with Robert DeNiro.
*Zarrar Shah planed to blame a non-existent Indian organisation, Hyderabad Deccan Mujahadeen, and typed up a fake declaration of responsibility.
*NSA claim they didn't know GCHQ were surveilling LeT tech chief, Zarrar Shah.

Probe agencies find common link between 26/11 financiers, Hurriyat's Firdous Ahmad Shah

SRINAGAR: Probe agencies have found a common link between money received by Firdous Ahmad Shah, a member of Syed Ali Shah Geelani's hardline Hurriyat Conference, and financiers of 26/11.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED), which recently filed its first charge sheet in a money laundering case in the Kashmir Valley, has alleged that Shah, Chairman of Democratic Political Movement, received over Rs three crore between 2007 to 2010.

The money was received from 'Madina Trading' located in Brescia in Italy and sender was claimed to be Javed Iqbal, a resident of Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK). However, after Italian police arrested two Pakistani nationals in 2009, it was alleged that the firm had made nearly 300 transfers in the name of Iqbal, who probably had never set his foot in Italy.

The name of Madina trading had cropped up during the investigation of 26/11 Mumbai attacks when it was found that the second payment of 229 US dollars was wired to Callphonex via Western Union Money Transfer receipt number 8364307716-0 for activitating the Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) used during the terror strikes.
