New Delhi: Osama Bin Laden used to get payments from an Indian and this comes as a shocking revelation after it gets declassified by the United States government. The related documents were found in the safe house in Abottabad in Pakistan, where Laden was killed by United States forces in a unilateral operation. According to reports, the man, identified by Osama as Indian brother from Medinah, had sent money in Pakistan for him.
According to reports, the man sent Rs 292,400 in May 2008 and Rs 335,000 in July, 2009. Documents swept up in the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound portray a leader cut off from his underlings, disappointed by their failures, beset by their complaints and regretting years of separation from much of his extensive family.
The U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence said the documents, released as online images, were among a collection of books, U.S. think tank reports and other materials recovered in the May 2011 raid that killed bin Laden at his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The information was declassified and made public after a review by government agencies, as required by a 2014 law. Hundreds more documents found at the compound will be reviewed for possible declassification and release, the office said Wednesday, four years after bin Laden’s death.
The documents, as translated by U.S. intelligence officials, mix the mundane language of business — personnel training, budget matters, financing for ‘workshops and collaborating groups’ — with fervent religious appeals and updates on terrorism plots, all written in flowery language full of praise for God.
