A terrorist arrested in December in Austria last year for his links to the Paris attacks may have also been involved in the 2008 Mumbai bombings that killed 164 people.

Muhammad Ghani U., 34, had been arrested in Salzburg along with an Algerian ISIS fighter called Adel H., 28, after it emerged that he had entered Europe along with two other attackers who blew themselves up in the French capital in November.

Both suspects, who had registered for asylum in Austria, are being held under charges of participating in a terrorist organisation.

According to sources quoted in the UK’s Sunday Times newspaper, Muhammad Ghani U. is believed to be a ‘veteran bomb maker’ for the Pakistani terrorist organisation Lashkar-e-Taiba.

Lashkar-e-Taiba, one of the biggest and most active terrorists networks in South Asia, claimed responsibility for the Mumbai attack in November 2008, that saw the city bombarded by 12 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks lasting four days.
