RCN against Lashker's Abu Hamza; Blue corner against 19 others

Interpol on Wednesday issued Red Corner notice against a Lashker-e-Taiba terrorists wanted in connection with Mumbai terror strikes in November last year. The Interpol issued notice against Abu Hamza, accused of motivating and training the 10 terrorists sent to Mumbai for carrying out the terror strike.

Ajmal Iman Kasab, the lone arrested terrorist in the attack, had revealed the names of his Pakistani handlers, including Abu Hamza, Abu Jindal, Abu Qama and Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, who saw them off when they boarded a ship at Karachi.

Hamza had advised them on how to go about the terror attacks, how to place bomb in a taxi and how the 10-member terrorist team should go about their mission.

The Red Corner notice was issued against Saeed (59) and Lakhvi (48) after a Mumbai court issued a non-bailable warrant against the two for their role in the attacks in the country's financial hub. Saeed was earlier on the United Nations Global Watch list.

CBI spokesman said Blue Corner notices were issued against 19 people including Col R Sadat Ullah, believed to be a Pakistani army personnel.

Through this, India has sought additional information about their identity or activities in relation to a crime from Interpol Member countries.
