Mir, also known as Sajid Majid Chuhdri, has been a senior member of Lashkar-e Tayyiba (LeT) since approximately 2001, as of 2011, he was involved in militant recruitment activities.

After September 11, 2001, Mir recruited four Virginia-based operatives, cleared them for LeT’s militant training, and directed them to monitor and research U.S. target sites.

As of 2005, Mir had directed LeT training for operatives preparing for overseas recruiting, money laundering, and operational planning on behalf of LeT.

From 2006 to 2011, Mir was in charge of LeT’s external operations and planned and directed various terrorist attacks on behalf of the group.

Mir was LeT’s project manager for the November 2008 terrorist attacks that killed 166 people and wounded 308 in Mumbai, India. In this capacity, Mir trained and provided guidance to the operatives involved in the attacks and directed the execution of hostages taken during the operation. Mir also directed the pre-operation target surveillance conducted by LeT operative David Coleman Headley for the attacks.

In late 2008, Mir and Headley met in Pakistan and discussed the prospect of an attack on the Jyllands-Posten newspaper in Copenhagen, Denmark. In March 2010, David Coleman Headley pled guilty to 12 U.S. federal terrorism charges, admitting that he participated in planning the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India and in planning later to attack the Danish newspaper.

Mir has also served as personal secretary to LeT operations chief Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, and was responsible for Lakhvi’s security as of 2010.
