Insight into Pir Khan's past


New documents shed light on the past of Pir Khan, the man at the center of last week's terror raids.

Khan is being detained as part of an international investigation into the botched terror attack in New York City. The U.S. Attorney General has said that Khan and the other man taken into custody are accused of providing money to Faisal Shahzad . Shahzad had attempted to place a bomb in Times Square.

Up until last week, Khan had passed the scrutiny of one local law enforcement agency; the Boston Police.

The Boston Police Hackney Division approved Khan's license to drive a taxi 13 times since he first applied in 1997. The paperwork reveals that Khan also worked at a pizza shop, in construction and drove a Cambridge taxi.

Khan also says he worked for the same Brookline gas station owner as his roommate, who was also detained.

Pir Khan indicates that he came to the United States from Pakistan in 1991 and said that he had never committed a crime. His record as a cab driver in Boston was clean.

Federal authorities are only saying that Khan is being held on immigration violations. Pakistan's Consul General says that both Khan and his roommate deny any connection to Faisal Shahzad.
