Pakistan rejected FBI, CBI demands to nab Masood Azhar

Express India, Jan 10

Repeated demands by US FBI, the Interpol and India's CBI to nab Masood Azhar, one of the three militants released by India in return for the release of hijacked passengers of Indian airlines' flight IC-814 in 1999, has been rejected by Pakistan, a media report said.


Islamabad has maintained that those sought by India were "not terrorists as none of them was ever charged, tried or convicted for any act of terrorism", it said. Two of the three militants released in the wake of the December 1999, hijack "continue to be sheltered in Pakistan" despite repeated demands by the Interpol, the US FBI and the Central Bureau of Investigation.

Besides Azhar, two others released by India then were Mushtaq Ahmed Zargar, chief of another outfit Al-Umar Mujahedeen, and a Harkat activist and British national of Pakistani origin, Sheikh Ahmed Omar Saeed.


Omar Sayeed was tried and sentenced to life imprisonment by a Pakistan court on charges of murdering US journalist Daniel Pearl. His links with Mohammad Atta, one of the men who crashed a boeing into New York's world trade center on September 11, 2001, have been established by investigators who claimed that the 100,000 dollars "transferred into Atta's account was actually provided to Omar by former ISI chief Lt General Mahmood Ahmed", the report said.
