Indian police investigating the Bombay train bombings have made their first arrests, picking up three men who officers said were linked to terror networks across South Asia. All three suspects were picked up Thursday, and "we have definite evidence that these people are linked to terrorist activities," one of the lead investigators, K.P. Raghuvanshi, told reporters Friday. "They have connections with groups in Nepal and Bangladesh, which are directly or indirectly connected to Pakistan." He identified the men as Khaleel Aziz Sheikh, Kamal Ahmed Ansari and Mumtaz Ahmed Chowdhury, correcting names given in earlier police reports. The first two were arrested in the eastern state of Bihar and the third was seized in Bombay. None has yet been charged.
