Why India is desperate to get Sajid Mir By Vicky Nanjappa | Rediff
The hunt for the mysterious Sajid Mir will only get tougher for India as Pakistan continues to remain in denial about the existence of this man. Indian sleuths do not expect Pakistan or its dreaded ISI to tell them the truth about this man.
Mir is the handler of the terrorists who carried out the 26/11 terror attacks on Mumbai. He was constantly on the phone with the terrorists during the attack and goaded them to mercilessly kill people.
India has been making consistent efforts to get information regarding Mir and his whereabouts. The latest bit of information from Pakistan is strange. Pakistan authorities say that the only Mir that they know is a religious leader. He is a cleric and has never been associated with the army or any other major establishment in Pakistan.
But India is looking for information on Mir since at the moment is more important than any other person involved in this plot. India was looking to interrogate Saeed in order to get a clear picture on Mir, his antecedents and whereabouts.
India's tryst to get its hands on Mir commenced four days after the 26/11 attack.
Although the voice samples took a while to ascertain, it was based on intercepts and other sources of intelligence that the name of Mir came out in the open.
Six months after the attack there was immense pressure on Pakistan to make arrests in connection with this attack and at that point of time they had claimed that Mir too had been taken into custody. However an expose later revealed that they had arrested someone else. Later it was announced that they had got the wrong man.
The IB says that this is one big bluff on part of Pakistan. Today they say that Mir is just an ordinary cleric in Pakistan. If this was the case, why did they make an arrest and tell the world that the man who was picked up was Mir.
India has made various attempts to get some clarity on Mir. However as was reported earlier the confusion regarding his name still remains. In some circles he is known as Sajid Mir and in some as Sajid Majid.
On the other hand, the US media says that he was part of the Pakistan army and continues to be well connected with the establishment. However, these facts too are not adding up since there is still confusion regarding his age.
India maintains that he joined the Lashkar when he was 16 years old. However it is unclear how he made the transition into the Pakistan army as an officer after that.
India says that Mir is a global operative, wanted in several cases round the world.
His conviction in absentia by a French court a few years back is a testimony to India's claims. The Intelligence Bureau also says that he was once arrested in Dubai along with a few others.
He was allegedly plotting a major terror attack, but he was released mysteriously without proper interrogation or investigation. It is suspected that his close links with the ISI helped him wriggle out this situation.
India will now have to find an alternative to find out more on Mir.
The interrogation of Headley too did not give much on Mir.
There is a need to coordinate with the French who have tried this man and also seek access to Headley's close aide Tawahur Rana, who also knew of Mir.
While these efforts would clear up the 26/11 mystery to a large extent, it would also give India more information on possible future attacks. It is a known fact that the videos shot by Headley fell into the hands of Mir and this is worrisome since Mir is very capable of acting upon it.

The probe agency is also likely to name some Pakistanis in its charges, including LeT commander Sajid Mir and Major Iqbal, said to be in the Pakistan Army, the sources told IANS.
Because of his role, ..., 26 Nov 2014 [cached]
Because of his role, Shah, together with another young Lashkar chief named Sajid Mir, became an intelligence target for the British, Indians and Americans.
In 2007, a French court convicted in absentia the ringleader, Mir. He remained at large in Pakistan under ISI protection, investigators say.
The lead conspirators were alleged to be Mir and Lakhvi, according to interviews and Indian court files, with Shah acting as a technical wingman, running the communications and setting up the hardware.
Videos, maps and reconnaissance reports had been supplied to Mir by Headley, the Pakistani-American who scouted targets.
It was from this room that Mir, Shah and others would issue minute-by-minute instructions to the assault team once the attacks began. On Nov. 25, Abu Jundal tested the VoIP software on four laptops spread out on four small tables facing a pair of televisions as the plotters, including Mir, Shah and Lakhvi, waited for the killings to begin.
Although Pakistan denies any role in the attacks, it has failed to charge an ISI officer and Mir, who were indicted by U.S. prosecutors.
Pakistan 's army has confirmed security agencies are questioning a retired major, Sajid Mir, who joined Lashkar-e-Toiba, in connection with a
Sajid Mir.
Sajid Mir, who is wanted in four continents, because the LeT terrorist is "well connected" and "too powerful", US counter-terrorism officials have said.
Sajid Mir is the deputy to the director of Lashkar's foreign operations unit (see also - Mumbai-carnage investigation).
Sajid Mir travelled to India and secretly visited several places as a Pakistani cricket fan in 2005, according to an investigative report published by the Washington Post on 11/14/2010.
"In 2005, Mir joined a Lashkar-e-Toiba unit dedicated to attacks in India and embarked on a secret mission.
Sajid Mir and a figure known as "Major Iqbal" as two of the handlers of the Mumbai Carnage perpetrators.
Sajid Mir and “Major Iqbal†are the same man using different names. * In a report of the French Judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere, who got his reputation investigating terror cases in France, Sajid Mir was a handler of Willie Brigitte already in 2002-3.
"When Bruguiere questioned Brigitte, the links between Lashkar-e-Toiba, Sajid Mir and Pakistan's intelligence service ISI began to unravel," the report said, according to Indian press on 11/22/2011.
"In three years investigating Mir, Bruguiere learned that he was connected to plots in Virginia, Britain and Australia.
Soon enough, Bruguiere had built a case arguing Mir was a Lashkar chief with ties to the Pakistani military and the ISI, and had been leading terrorist plots across four continents," it said.

Headley to testify against Illyas Kashmiri and Sajid Mir
Washington, Jun 14 : David Headley, who has pleaded guilty to charges of his involvement in the Mumbai terror attacks, would testify against his Pakistani handlers, Illyas Kashmiri and Sajid Mir, a US attorney has said.
Illyas Kashmiri, the Al Qaeda leader; Sajid Mir, the Lashkar-e-Taiba commander; Major Iqbal, said to be a serving officer of Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) and Abdur Rehman Hashim Syed aka Pasha, another LeT leader; are charged to be involved in the 26/11 attack, besides plotting a major terrorist attack in Denmark.
