Known for its expertise in suicide bombing and conventional assault tactics, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LET) has carried out many deadly attacks.  Although the organization stopped claiming responsibility for attacks after it was ostensibly banned by Pakistan in 2002, Indian authorities have arrested many LET operatives in connection with attacks in the region. Various intelligence services consider LET to be one of the most dangerous Islamic militant groups operating in Kashmir.

 

Many of the group's deadliest attacks include:

 

  • November 26-28, 2009: At least ten armed militants attacked several locations frequented by tourists throughout Mumbai, killing 170 people and wounding approximately 300 others.
  • September 8, 2006: A series of bomb blasts detonated near a mosque in Malegon during Friday prayers, killing 37 people and injuring 135 others.
  • July 11, 2006: A series of blasts exploded in the Mumbai subway, killing 29 people and injuring more than 700 others.
  • March 7, 2006: A series of bombings in Varanasi killed at least 28 people and wounded more than 100 others.
  • October 29, 2005: Three coordinated suicide bombings in New Delhi during Hindu festival killed at least 63 people and wounded more than 200 others.
  • August 25, 2003:  A double bombing in Bombay (Mumbai) killed 52 people and wounded 175 others.
  • September 24, 2002: A raid on Akshardam Temple in Gujarat killed 28 Hindu worshippers.
