Attack on Lankan cricket team:

Pakistan nabs suspect

Pakistan police Tuesday claimed they have detained the main suspect allegedly involved in the attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore last year. The middle-aged suspect, identified as Qari Abdul Wahab alias Qari Umer, was caught from the Raiwind area of Lahore for masterminding the attack on the visiting Sri Lanka cricket in March 2009, police added.

The Superintendent of Police, Lahore, Umer Virk, has said that Umer was allegedly involved in a number of criminal cases including the attack on the Sri Lankan team.

Virk said Umer, a former activist of the defunct Lashkara-e-Jhangvi (LJ), who provided information to other terrorists regarding their targets and locations.

Police recovered a suicide vest, mobile phones and Rs 2.5 million from Qari Umer during the arrest.
