The Gulfnews reveals that Abu Musab al Zarqawi, while an full-time employee (Jihad Executive Director and Emir) of Al Qaeda working in Iraq, was collecting unemployment benefits in India.
Lucknow: Iraq’s deceased Al Qaida leader, Abu Musab Al Zarqawi, was registered for unemployment benefits in India, a recent report suggests.
A query has been ordered to certify how Al Zarqawi, who was killed in a US air strike in Iraq last week, came to be registered as an Indian resident.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary, N C Bajpai, is particularly concerned about reports that the late Al Qaida leader, who was registered under the name of Ama Zarqawi, was made eligible for unemployment benefits by the Lucknow district administration.
Disciplinary action has been ordered by the principal secretary and district administration against those responsible for the lapse.
