The National Investigation Agency (NIA) told a Delhi court on Saturday that the custodial interrogation of 26/11 key handler Abu Jundal, has been completed.

The NIA stated this before Special CBI Judge Talwant Singh when Jundal was produced before the court after expiry of NIA's remand which was granted on October 8.

Accepting the NIA's submission that he was not required for further custodial interrogation, the Special CBI Court placed Jundal in judicial custody till November 3.

The NIA had earlier sought Jundal's custody in connection with a case registered earlier this year following unearthing of a Lashkar-e-Toiba's (LeT) conspiracy for terror strikes across the country. The designated NIA court had also issued production warrants against Jundal.

Jundal had earlier claimed before the court that he was "tortured" physically and mentally during the probe by various agencies since his arrest in June this year.

He had said that he had already disclosed the facts which were within his knowledge to the other probe agencies.

Jundal had earlier been handed over to ATS Mumbai after the Delhi Police had said that he was no longer required to be interrogated by it in the Jama Masjid attack case.

Mumbai ATS had wanted him in connection with the 2006 Aurangabad arms haul case, the 26/11 Mumbai mayhem, the 2010 German bakery blast and the Nasik Academy attack. (ANI)
