Feb. 5: DNA samples drawn from Ajmal Kasab, the only terrorist captured alive, have matched with imprints on a lifejacket found on MV Kuber, the fishing trawler that brought the 26/11 gunmen to Mumbai.

“The sweat analysis from a lifejacket found on the Kuber matched with the DNA samples of Kasab,” a top forensic official said. Kasab and nine others boarded the Gujarat-based fishing vessel in international waters sailed to within a few nautical miles off Mumbai.

DNA analysis of another five terrorists involved in the carnage is being conducted in the Kalina For-ensic Science Laboratory.
In another development, the National Security Adv-iser, Mr M.K. Narayanan was contradicted for a second time in three days on Thursday by the home minister, Mr P. Chidamba-ram, who said that India had not received any response on the dossier given to Pakistan on the Mumbai attacks.

“There is no confusion. Both the external affairs minister and I have said that we have not received any response to the dossier given to Pakistan as yet,” Mr Chidambaram said.

This was in response to Mr Narayanan’s remarks in an interview to a private television channel that Pakistan had asked twice for more details on the dossier.
Meanwhile, a report in the Pakistan newspaper Dawn said that Pakistani investigators probing the Mumbai attacks are closing in on a Bangladeshi connection to the terrorist strike.

They are said to have evidence of not only the involvement of a banned militant organisation, Harkat-ul-Jihad-al Islami, Bangladesh (HuJI-B), but also of its role in planning the attack and training the terrorists.
