Relatives of the Chabad emissaries murdered in the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai, India, are suing Pakistan's intelligence agency and the terror organization behind the operation, The New York Post reported on Monday.

The lawsuit names Lashkar-E-Taiba, a Kashmir-based terrorist group, and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency, and asks for unspecified damages, citing reports that the ISI was involved in planning the attacks.

Rabbi Gavriel Noah Holtzberg and his pregnant wife, Rivka, were killed when terrorists stormed the Mubai Chabad center.

Their son, Moshe Holtzberg, was rescued by his nanny, Sandra Samuel. Samuel was given honorary Israeli citizenship and permanent residency status, after moving to Israel to take care of the 2-year-old.

The Holtzberg family's lawyer, James Kreindler, also worked on the suit against Libyan intelligence agencies after the Pan Am Flight 103 terror attack, that brought down the plan in Lockerbie, Scotland, killing 270 in 1988.
