New Delhi, Jun 25: Pakistan denied his existence at first and when the pressure increased, they said he was not a handler but a Mullah. The man is Sajid Mir who Pakistan claims to have arrested.
Mir was David Headley’s handler who carried out the reconnaissance of Mumbai prior to the attacks of 26/11. An ISI asset, Mir carries an FBI bounty of $5 million on his head. In arresting Mir, Pakistan has once again displayed that it is all so predictable and the action comes at a time when the cash strapped nation is trying to wriggle out of the Grey List of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
Pakistan has denied the very existence of Mir to such an extent that one had wondered whether the man was a myth.

The fact that he would launder money and then use it to fuel violence in Jammu and Kashmir apart from using it for his personal pleasures was a well known fact. However successive governments, some liberals and dishonest media turned a blind eye to the same as a result of which Malik enjoyed a free run.
