New York Times WASHINGTON; Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Pakistan-based militant group suspected of conducting the 2008 Mumbai attacks, has gained strength in recent years with the help of Pakistan’s main spy service, which has allowed the group to train and raise money while other militants have been under siege. The ISI has shared intelligence with Lashkar and provided protection for it, officials said, and investigators are focusing on one Lashkar leader they believe is a main liaison with the spy service and a mastermind of the attacks, Zarrar Shah, who links directly to Muslim Mafia “Don” Dawood Ibrahim.
MUMBAI: November 26th 2008 attack by suspected Pakistanis on the city was enabled by the Dawood Ibrahim gang, police sources said.
