Mumbai: Arrested key plotter of 2008 Mumbai attacks Abu Jundal on Friday recorded a formal confession, giving his account of the planning and execution of India's worst-ever terror strike.
The statement of Jundal, who had earlier moved an application in court stating his desire to record his confession, was recorded before a magistrate in Mumbai, and can be treated as evidence in court, media reports said.
Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving gunman from Pakistan in the 2008 Mumbai attacks, and his handler Jundal were brought face-to-face and interrogated on Thursday.
Kasab identified Jundal as one the handlers who guided him and nine other terrorists throughout the strike that is known in India as 26/11.
According to reports, the two men were brought together at the Arthur Road jail on Thursday where Kasab is lodged and were interrogated for one-and-a-half hours.
The session happened after the Mumbai crime branch got permission of the Maharashtra government to interrogate the two militants together to work out the discrepancies between their accounts.
