India will give Pakistan information it has gathered on alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Syed Zabiuddin Ansari, alias Abu Hamza, the handler of the terrorists involved in the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, during the Indo-Pak foreign secretary-level talks in New Delhi on Wednesday including the passport purportedly issued by Pakistan, according to a report by India today.
Along with Abu Hamza’s Pakistani passport, the visiting delegation will also be given Pakistani domestic identity cards issued to the self-confessed terrorist, both of which show his name as Riyasat Ali.
Abu Hamza allegedly used the passport to enter Saudi Arabia in 2010 to recruit young immigrant Indians for future operations of LeT in India. The passport, copies of which have been obtained by Indian channel NDTV, show his permanent address as Muridke in Sheikhupura, Pakistan.
