US freezes assets of Pakistanis linked to LeT

US has frozen the assets of three Pakistanis who are  linked to Lashkar-e-Taiba. The militant group has been blamed for the deadly 2008 Mumbai Attacks attacks in which  164 people died and 308 were wounded.

The three Pakistanis are Abdul Rehman al-Dakhil , Hameed ul Hassan and Abdul Jabbar. While Al Dakhil has been named as a “specially designated global terrorist” and a senior member of LeT, Hassan and Jabbar have been named as Financiers who  routed money for Lashkar-e-Taiba and  salaries to its members.

As per Reuters, the Treasury’s designations “not only aim to expose and shut down Lashkar-e Tayyiba’s financial network, but also to curtail its ability to raise funds to carry out violent terrorist attacks,” Sigal Mandelker, the Treasury under-secretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, stated, using an alternate spelling of the group’s name.
