US declares Pakistan-based terrorists as global terrorists

Washington: The US today declared as global terrorists three individuals linked to Pakistan-based terror outfits like the LeT and the Taliban and asked Islamabad to deny sanctuaries to "dangerous" individuals and organisations.

As a result of today's designation, all property and interests in property of the trio -- Rahman Zeb Faqir Muhammad, Hizb Ullah Astam Khan and Dilawar Khan Nadir Khan - subject to US jurisdiction are blocked and the US citizens are prohibited from engaging in transactions with them.

The US Department of Treasury designated the trio as "global terrorists" for their links to terror outfits like Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and the Taliban.

This has been done as part of America's efforts to disrupt South Asian terrorist support networks, the Treasury said.

"The Treasury continues to aggressively pursue and expose radicals who support terrorist organisations and run illicit financial networks across South Asia," said Sigal Mandelker, Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence.

He said they were targeting operatives who provide logistical support, improvised explosive devices and other technological assistance to Al-Qaeda, the LeT, the Taliban and other terrorist groups.

"This is part of this administration's broader efforts to disrupt terrorist fund raising, and we call on the Pakistani government and others in the region to work with us to deny sanctuary to these dangerous individuals and organisations," Mandelker said.

Rahman Zeb Faqir Muhammad (Rahman Zeb) was designated for providing financial, material, or technological support for, or other services to or in support of LeT.

He was an LeT operative who for several years was responsible for collecting funds.
