LeT Trained Shahzad To Fight In Kashmir: Report19 May 2010
Washington DC: Pakistani-American Faisal Shahzad, arrested in connection with botched Times Square car bombing plot in New York was trained by LeT in a terrorist camp in Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir to be infiltrated into the Indian side, a top commander of the terror group has said. But, the 30-year-old son of a former Pakistani Air Vice Marshal wanted to go to Afghanistan to fight US troops. Shahzad, financial analyst in Connecticut, visited Pakistan in mid-June 2006 to receive training at a camp belonging to LeT, according to the commander at LeT's main base of operations in Dulai, a village 25 km south of Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. 'Shahzad came to us for training... He stayed with us for three months and we provided him with the basics. Then he went back to the US,' the commander was quoted as saying by the Canadian magazine Maclean which did not named him.
