The sources said Kasab explained that the training was divided into seven phases. "He said the first phase was of ‘very hard physical training’ of three months which included running 10 to 15 km. The next three months were for marine training like swimming, surfing, diving and boating in high seas.
The rest included arms and ammunition training,'' said a source. Sources said the Mumbai operation plot was planned in Karachi some six months ago (By Dawood Ibrahim). Joint commissioner of police (crime) Rakesh Maria said,"We are closely working with the all the central agencies who have earlier handled such situations.''

Reports indicate that Mafia Muslim 'Don' Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar set up (financed) the terror crew for the terror attack on Mumbai during Thanksgiving from his home in Karachi.
Muchchad (as Dawood ibrahim Kaskar is known in police and underworld circles) is now evincing interest in the day-to-day operations of his gang. He is himself making extortion calls to big builders now," an intelligence source revealed. "It's a throwback to the '80s when the don kept all powers to himself. Every hit was planned by him and payments to policemen and politicians were personally supervised by him," he added.
All of this from Dawoods palatial bungalow in the Clifton area of Karachi PK (WHITE HOUSE, NEAR SAUDI MOSQUE). Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar has connections with terrorist organisation lashkar-e-toiba (LeT).
Recent information indicates that Ibrahim has been helping finance increasing attacks in Gujarat by lashkar-e-toiba. New Delhi handed over to Islamabad a list of 38 most wanted criminals, including Dawood Ibrahim.
Sanjay Dutt, one of Bollywood’s biggest stars, was jailed for six years for possessing illegal firearms given to him by gangsters involved in a series of bomb attacks in Bombay in 1993.
Anees Ibrahim, one of the main accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case and younger brother of Dawood Ibrahim, had continued to dodge both Interpol and the Indian agencies using passports of four nations, including the USA and Pakistan.
Sources said Anees’s US passport (number 111480930) is in the name of Sheikh Anees A Tasleem. His wife Tahseem, too, carries an American passport (number 091655833) in the name of Sheikh Kalsoom A Anees. In addition Anees, also wanted in the murder cases of Gulshan Kumar, O P Kukreja and builder Pradeep Jain, has a Belize passport (A-001407 dated June 6, 1995), a Pakistani passport and a Tanzanian passport.
Anees had managed to fly out to Pakistan from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on December 12, 1996, the night after he was granted bail. He had, however, reportedly been warned by the UAE authorities not to return to their country in future. Officials in Abu Dhabi and Dubai had played a key role in getting him released after his arrest in Dubai on December 3, following an Interpol Red Corner notice (A-349) issued in 1994.
The officials had also managed to track down at least 12 mobile and land line phone numbers, including six mobile phone numbers originating from the UAE. Five other numbers originate from Pakistan while one telephone number is from the United Kingdom.
Anees Ibrahim Kaskar fled Dubai after Indian law enforcement agencies nabbed and deported Aftab Ansari to India. He was allegedly involved in the attack on the US consulate in Kolkata.
