Indian police have named a serving colonel of the Pakistani Army in connection with the November Mumbai (Bombay) attacks, in which 164 people were killed. The colonel has been accused of facilitating communications between the attackers and their handlers in Pakistan using "voice over Internet protocol (VoIP)." A charge sheet filed by the Mumbai police on Wednesday lists the colonel as one of 35 suspects wanted in connection with the attacks. Investigations by the Indian authorities also hint at the involvement of another Pakistani Army official and a government employee in the attacks.
