New Delhi, Nov. 25. Pakistani Intelligence is investigating alleged terrorist links of a scientist who once strongly advocated extensive production of weapons-grade plutonium and uranium enrichment with a view to equipping other Islamic countries with nuclear capabilities, an American newspaper has reported.

Dr. Sultan Bashiruddin Mahmood is one of the two atomic scientists detained by Pakistan's military Intelligence for questioning over the past six weeks about their alleged connections to Osama bin Laden and his Al-Qaeda terrorist group, the Washington Post reported on Saturday quoting senior Pakistani Intelligence sources.

Both Dr. Mahmood, who was once involved in Pakistan's nuclear tests, and Dr. Abdul Majid acknowledged having met Osama and Mullah Omar during at least three visits to Afghanistan last year, but insist that the meetings were in connection with a relief agency they founded in 1999, the sources were quoted as saying.
