The Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) official, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject, said Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi was taken into custody following Sunday’s raid on a camp used by Lashkar-e-Taiba fighters outside Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistani Kashmir.
“Yes, Lakhvi is among four or five people arrested in a raid yesterday,” said the official, whose JuD charity is regarded as front for the feared militant group.
Pakistani intelligence officers said six men have been arrested, but gave no names, and there has been no official confirmation of the raid.
Lakhvi, one of Lashkar’s operations chiefs, was named as a ringleader in the Mumbai plot by the lone surviving gunman captured in India, according to Indian officials.
