Srinagar: A man claiming to be the spokesperson of the Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) has called up a television channel here to deny links with the Indian Mujahideen and to condemn the Sep 13 bombings in Delhi.In a phone call late Sunday to the bureau chief of Zee News, a caller identifying himself as Dr. Abdullah Ghaznavi, the LeT spokesperson, said: “We condemn the recent bombings in Indian capital New Delhi and also denounce the propaganda that LeT has any links with the so-called Indian Mujahideen group. “LeT does not believe in targeting innocent, unarmed civilians. We are engaged in fighting the Indian armed forces in Kashmir. “Our struggle shall continue till Kashmir’s freedom from India. Attempts to link us with bombings against innocent civilians are condemnable as their intention is to malign our organisation.” Delhi Police officials have said that the Indian Mujahideen, which claimed responsibility for the serial bombings that killed 24 people Sep 13, has proven links with the LeT.
