Arrested youth has no connection with LeT: Dr Ghaznavi
Srinagar, Sep 5: Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) on Monday dissociated itself from a youth arrested by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from north Virginian state of US on Friday.
“The arrested youth Zubair Ahmad has no connection with LeT,” the LeT spokesman Dr Abdullah Ghaznavi told Greater Kashmir over phone.
He said the “agencies” were running a “propaganda campaign” against the
pro-freedom groups of Kashmir to “stigmatize” the movement.
“We are making it clear time and again that our group has no global agenda accept fighting in Kashmir and we have no network in other parts of the world accept Pakistan administered Kashmir.”
Pertinently, a Pakistani-born Ahmad, who was living in northern Virginia, was charged with trying to help LeT in his home country and making false statements to authorities, US prosecutors had said on Friday.
Zubair Ahmad, 24, was accused of providing material support to the group.
