Omar's suspected involvement throws new light on Pakistan's role in cross-border terrorism and could give Indian diplomacy the impetus it needs to establish its case.
The fact that the US sees Omar as a key suspect in the September 11 attacks is largely due to the information furnished by Indian officials and intelligence agencies to the American investigators.

The transaction was allegedly conducted by Omar.
