SRINAGAR (AFP) - A powerful militant group Monday denied links to a Pakistani man arrested in the US on charges of providing support to the outfit blamed for the deadly Mumbai attacks in 2008. Jubair Ahmad, 24, stands accused of providing material support to Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and then lying about his involvement to investigators. The arrested Pakistani young man Jubair Ahmed has never been associated with LeT, the groups spokesman Abdullah Ghaznavi told AFP by telephone from an undisclosed location. The Federal Bureau of Investigation had been investigating Ahmad, a legal permanent resident living in the US state of Virginia, since 2009, after receiving information that he might be linked to LeT. The FBI learned that as a teen Ahmad received indoctrination and training from LeT while he lived in Pakistan, and that from the United States he communicated with the son of the groups founder Hafiz Saeed. Linking of Jubair to Lashkar by US investigators is part of Indian propaganda that has been unleashed in the US with an aim to malign Indian-Held Kashmirs freedom struggle and to hoodwink the international community, Ghaznavi said. He said Lashkars network was only confined to Held Kashmir and the group had no global agenda.
