New Delhi, Feb 21: Pakistan will stay in the grey list until June 2020. If it fails to act on terror funding and money laundering, it will be downgraded to the black list. This was decided at the plenary of the FATF, which concluded on Thursday at Paris.
Pakistan was told that it could end up in the black list if it failed to complete its 27 point action, according to sources.
Saroj Kumar Rath, a professor at the Delhi University and author of “Fragile Frontiers: The Secret History of Mumbai Terror attacks,” said that there were many people back then who had tried to paint a very different image of the 26/11 attack
The events around the Mumbai 26/11 attack were raked up following the revelations made by lead investigator and former Mumbai police commissioner Rakesh Maria.
Maria, who led the probe into the attack in his book, “Let Me Say it Now”, spoke about how attempts were made to pass of the entire attack as a doing of the Hindus. He also said that had Ajmal Kasab not been caught, then he would have lived as Samir Choudhary.
New Delhi, Feb 20: In a major development, China has joined India and the US to send a strong message to Pakistan to act on terror funding.
Saudi Arabia too has joined the above mentioned countries and has told Pakistan to complete its commitments on action against terror funding and money laundering given by the Financial Action Task Force.
New Delhi, Feb 19: The National Investigation Agency has filed a chargesheet against 11 persons in connection with a Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen, Bangladesh case. Investigations revealed that the members of the JMB were involved in a criminal conspiracy to commit acts of terror.
They were raising funds by committing dacoities for their terrorist activities, organising terrorist camps, recruiting persons for committing terrorist activities, harbouring group members, procurement of explosive and ammunitions for anti-national activities.
Officials who interrogated Kasab told MyNation that the terrorists were advised by their handlers to sport red bands. The ISI could not succeed in passing off the Mumbai 26/11 attack as one of Hindu terror.
Bengaluru: The cat is out of the bag again. This time it is the lead investigator of the Mumbai 26/11 attack, who has said that there was a deliberate attempt to manufacture a Hindu terror plot.
Had this not been stopped, we would have known Ajmal Kasab as Samir Choudhary, former police commissioner of Mumbai, Rakesh Maria, who led the 26/11 investigation, has said in his book.
Pakistan would state that it has not been able to proceed against Masood Azhar because they are not aware of his whereabouts. However, India would counter this lie with documents, dossiers, which also have the statements of Pakistan’s foreign minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi.
During the ongoing plenary of the Financial Action Task Force, Pakistan would cite the disappearance of Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar.
Pakistan would tell the FATF that it has not been able to file an FIR against Azhar as they do not know his whereabouts. However, India is ready to call out this bluff and has prepared ample material to prove that Pakistan is lying.
New Delhi, Feb 17: The National Investigation Agency has charged two accused of the NSCN (IM) in connection with a terror funding case. The case is related to the seizure of Rs 10,46,100 from Luckin Mashangva and Jaikishan Sharma.
