    Pakistan arrests more suspects in deadly car bomb attack - Times of India
    MULTAN: Pakistani counterterrorism police made more arrests Saturday in connection with a car bombing earlier in the week that killed three people and injured 25. The Lahore attack was near the residence of a convicted militant leader linked to the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks.
    Investigative officer Ahmed Wakeel said police arrested a man from the Mandi Bahauddin area of ​​Punjab province who sold the car used in Wednesday’s blast.
    The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of the home of Hafiz Saeed, a US Secretary of Justice’s $ 10 million terrorist. Said was not injured in the powerful explosion in the neighborhood of Johar in Lahore.
    Weckel said two other men were arrested in the northwestern province of Kimbraj for allegedly engaging in car bombings. Police now have five suspects in custody in connection with the blast.
    On Friday, security forces arrested Pakistani national David Peter at Lahore airport as he tried to fly out of the country. His arrest led to the arrest of another man from the eastern city.
    Wakeel also said investigators found evidence of Indian intelligence involvement in the attack. He did not develop.
    Saeed is the founder of the illegal Lashkar-e-Taiba group, which has been blamed for the 2008 Bombay bombings that killed 166 people.
    Last year, Pakistan sentenced Saeed to 15 years in prison on terrorism charges, but was never charged with the Mumbai attacks. He served his term at home by government order.
