Mumbai, July 21 (ANI): Arrested 26/11 key handler Abu Jundal, who was brought to Mumbai in the wee hours on Saturday, will be produced before the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate in Esplanade Court in south Mumbai.
A Delhi Court on Friday handed over Jundal to Maharashtra’s Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS).
The suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative is wanted by the Mumbai Police in various terror cases, including the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack case, 2006 Aurangabad arms haul case and German bakery blast case in Pune.
The Mumbai ATS has been seeking Jundal’s custody since he was nabbed by the Delhi Police. The Delhi court has directed the Mumbai ATS to produce Jundal back in Delhi once the investigation is over.
Jundal, alias Abu Hamza, was arrested at Delhi airport on June 21 on his arrival from Saudi Arabia.
According to reports, Jundal has admitted his active role in the 26/11 attack, saying he had worked in tandem with terror mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi.
He has during his interrogation confessed his role in the country’s worst terror attack and admitted that he was present in the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) control room in Karachi from where direction was being given to the 10 terrorists who carried out the strike. (ANI)
