The United States and the United Nations Security Council have said that Al-Qaeda provided support to the Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT) to carry out the July 2006 training bombings in Mumbai and the February 2007 Samjhauta Express blasts in Panipat.

If correct, this would be the first-ever confirmation that an international jihadi outfit like the Al-Qaeda was directly involved in aiding and abetting major terrorist attacks in India.

The revelation was made when the US and the UNSC proscribed four men, all residents of Pakistan and belonging to the LeT: Fazeel-A-Tul Shaykh Abu Mohammed Ameen Al-Peshawari, Arif Qasmani, Mohammed Yahya Mujahid and Nasir Javaid.

Qasmani, the US and the UN have said, is the chief coordinator for LeT dealings with outside organisations and has provided significant support for LeT terrorist operations.
