An Indian militant based in Nepal who helped Pakistani gunmen cross ‘s porous borders to stage attacks is being brought to Mumbai for questioning in the recent Mumbai siege, police officials said Wednesday.
Sabauddin Ahmed was arrested in February with another militant who police say had scouted Mumbai targets a year before last month’s attacks, they said.

Both men are Indians — a blow to officials who have blamed Pakistan-based militants entirely for the three-day siege, which left 171 people dead and paralyzed large parts of India’s financial capital.
Ahmed was based in Katmandu, Nepal where he took orders from handlers from the banned Pakistani militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba, said Amitabh Yash, director of the police Special Task Force in India’s Uttar Pradesh state.
