Zimbabwean police say they have contacted Pakistan's security agencies for information on two men arrested in the southern African nation and who are suspected of links to November 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai, India.

Police spokesman Wayne Bvudzijena said, on Saturday, the men were arrested in the southern border town of Beitbridge on June 20 for trying to use fake passports to enter South Africa.

Zimbabwean state media, citing unnamed sources, reported that Imran Muhammad, 33, was wanted in Pakistan for alleged involvement in the Mumbai attacks that killed 166 people. The second man was identified as Chaudry Parvez Ahmed.

Pakistani officials could not immediately be reached for comment. South African police officials say they do not suspect terrorism.
