    New Delhi has blamed the attacks on the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba movement, and Pakistan is under pressure from India and the international community to crack down on the Pakistani-based militant group.

    New Delhi said all 10 armed men involved in the attack were Pakistanis and that their handlers in Pakistan had kept up communication by phone during the three-day assault on Mumbai's financial district.

    The information that led to the arrests came from India.

    Malik said that police had traced a boat engine used by the attackers to Pakistan and infiltrated two hideouts of the suspected perpetrators in the country.
