New Delhi: An unknown Pakistan-based terror group, the Lashkar-e-Taiba Al Alami (LeT-international), on Tuesday claimed responsibility for the bombing in a Pune eatery which killed 10 people Saturday.A person identifying himself as Abu Jindal, the spokesman of the group, called an Islamabad-based Indian journalist and claimed that they carried out the attack because of "two reasons".India's "refusal" to discuss Kashmir in the forthcoming talks with Pakistan and New Delhi's "alliance" with the US, the caller told the journalist.
"Joh bhi America ka ittehadi hoga, hum uskey khilaf jang ladengey, chahey woh India ho ya Pakistan (Be it India or Pakistan, we will fight against any ally of America)."
The person said he was calling from Miranshah in North Waziristan. The telephone number had an area code of Waziristan in the North-West Frontier Province in Pakistan, according to the scribe.He said the group had split the Lashkar-e-Taiba because it took orders from Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence.
There were no more details about the group but the caller told the Indian scribe that the Pune attack was carried out with the help of its "sources" in India.
