SRINAGAR (AFP) - Lashkar-e-Taiba (LT), blamed for last years attacks on Mumbai, denied Monday that two men arrested in Chicago on terrorism charges were among its members. David Headley, a Pakistani-born American, and Tahawwur Rana, a Canadian citizen of Pakistani origin, were arrested in October on charges of plotting attacks in India and Denmark. India has accused both of links to LT. We strongly reject claims that Headley and Rana are associated with Lashkar-e-Taiba, the groups spokesman Abdullah Ghaznavi told AFP by telephone from an undisclosed location. We strongly condemn it. All our members are locals (Kashmiris) and none of our activists are present in America. Linking the two to Lashkar is a game plan to malign Lashkar at an international level, Ghaznavi said, repeating that his group denied any involvement in the Mumbai attacks. He said the group was only active in Kashmir to end Indias illegal occupation.
