Pakistan investigation agencies have, for the very first time, revealed that they have adequate proof that the banned Lashkar-e-Tayiba is directly involved in the terror attack on Mumbai last year.

A Federal Investigation Agency report handed over to India says the material recovered from LeT camps in Karachi and Thatta indicate that the terrorists received training and weapons.

"The investigation has established beyond any reasonable doubt that the defunct LeT activists conspired, abetted, planned, financed and established communication network to carry out terror attacks in Mumbai," the report states.

Officials said they have also recovered handwritten diaries, training manuals, Indian maps and operational instructions from Lashkar camps.

"The accused were running training camps for terrorists, providing sea and navigational training, conducting intelligence courses and directions for terrorist attack," the report said.

It discloses that training sessions for the attackers was codenamed 'Azizabad' (Azizabad is one of the neighbourhoods of Gulberg Town in Karachi). The  investigators seized militant literature, inflatable lifeboats, detailed maps of the Indian coastline, handwritten literature on navigational training and an intelligence course manual.
