"Pakistan told Indian officials to look into all aspects, including an LTTE or Al-Qaeda connection. Pakistan also informed India that some of the terrorists appeared to be South Indians and looked like LTTE cadres. India investigated every angle," the official said.
London's Pakistani High Commissioner in an interview told BBC over the weekend that some of the terrorists looked very much like South Indians.
From Sir Lanka Ministry of Defence .......
A little known terror outfit "Deccan Mujahideen" has claimed responsibility for the attacks. Anti-terrorist operations are continuing as Indian security forces take on the formidable mission to save the lives of the people trapped as its remains a daunting task to isolate the innocents from the terrorists.
Meanwhile, a senior defence observer speaking to defence.lk expressed his concerns over the evolvement of another terrorist group in the region similar to the LTTE in brutality. He said that world's ignorance of the true nature of terrorist groups such as the LTTE has given them the liberty to develop and share new tactics in terrorist warfare.
"No one can expect that an influence of a terrorist group will confine to one country, it will spread as the terrorist groups copy and modify tactics used by each other", he said.
"This is why the world should help countries who fight against terrorism. We Sri Lankans have been suffering from terrorist menace for decades. Yet, there are some countries act sympathizing to the terrorists groups that murder citizens of countries like ours" , he added.
Commenting on the Mumbai terrorist attack he said that there is a strong resemblance between the tactics used by the LTTE and the Indian terror group.
" The LTTE has taught many tactics to the foreign terrorist groups . They are the first terror group to introduce suicide bombers, the first group to engage in seaborne attacks, the first to acquire air capability", he said.
"The world can learn why a terrorists group must not be tolerated in any where in the world with Sri Lankan experience. The Mumbai attack reconfirms that terrorism is the greatest threat to the human civilizations" he concluded.

Some background found on this site: Hillary Clinton and Ram Ranjan
First there was Norman Hsu, the indicted crook who contributed to many of the Democrats in office to include Hillary Clinton. That post is located here:
Now it seems that she is getting help from a man named Ram Ranjan. Who is Ram Ranjan?
According to reports out of Sir Lanka it is stated:
"...Well known activists of a banned terrorist group in the United States are involved in the fund raising activities of the US Democratic candidate Senator Hilary Rodham Clinton.
According to a fundraising web site for the Senator, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) activists are involved in raising funds from 100 Dollars to 2300 Dollars to help elect Senator Clinton as the next United States President. The website could be reached at: https://contribute.hillaryclinton.com/events/nj1212.html
New Jersey residents have expressed the fear, that LTTE or the Tamil Tigers could flush supporters with millions of dollars, to buy influence over the next possible President of the United States of America by infiltrating into democratic fund raising machine.
An email distributed by a female activist, Pat Pathmakumar for the group under the name "Tamils for Clinton" has appealed to contribute for the Clinton fund by sending checks to her or a man named Ram Ranjan, a man who organized the LTTE Heroes day meeting in New Jersey last year. Ranjan has publicly admitted he raised funds for LTTE front, the Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO).
The terrorist group, that introduced innovative methods like suicide jackets to many terrorist groups in the world, is listed as a foreign terrorist group by the State Department and the US Federal police , the FBI has alleged that the group had offered to them millions of dollars as bribes to lift the ban. The group is alleged to be using bribes to buy influence in India, Malaysia and Sri Lanka. The money is being earned mostly by fraudulent business, credit card scams, drug running, voluntary fund raising and extortions of the Tamil Diaspora, according to a recent report of the Jane's Defense weekly.
According to the Clinton website, a leading LTTE activist, who came to live in New Jersey in 1994, called Ram Ranjan is one of the fund raisers of the Clinton campaign. Several others who are connected with him are also listed among the fund raisers.
Ram Ranjan has earlier admitted that he had raised funds for the Tamil Tigers front organization called Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) which had raised funds purportedly for humanitarian purposes but actually diverted those funds for terrorist activities from many countries in the world."
Moreover, the question has to be asked, why did India help the LTTE when it was written in 2003, that the LTTE sought to control Pakistan Terrorists?
