An FBI team investigating the Mumbai attacks’ case has said that the alleged main culprit, Ajmal Kasab, has no links with Pakistan.

The five-member team headed by the agency’s South Asian Department Director, William Robert, visited the remote town of Faridkot, the place India claims Kasab is a resident of.

However, the team members said that there was no connection between Kasab and the town, a Press TV correspondent reported.

“No evidence could be collected from the area which could confirm the claim of Ajmal Kasab’s being Pakistani”, the FBI investigators said on Wednesday.

Indian authorities had earlier alleged that Kasab was from Faridkot, in Pakistan’s Multan.

Earlier, Islamabad had announced that it had found links between the gunmen who carried out the Mumbai attacks and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), an outlawed militant group.
