    DHAKA: Pakistan-based terrorist group LeT, also blamed for the Mumbai terror attacks, had been carrying out its activities in Bangladesh for 14 years, an LeT-linked militant arrested here has said.

    Bangladesh on Friday announced the arrest of Mufti Obaidullah, a top operative of India's outlawed Asif Reza Commando Force who is also closely linked to HuJI and LeT.

    Obaidullah told police that LeT had been carrying out its activities in Bangladesh for 14 years, the Daily Star reported citing sources at the Detective Branch.

    "Mufti Obaidullah had been staying in the country since 1995," said Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner A K M Shahidul Hoque.

    "He (Obaidullah) had been trying to organize a jihad here in line with the directives of Kashmir-based LeT leader Ameer Reza, who is now staying in Pakistan," Hoque added.
