Abu Jundal sent to judicial custody

Mumbai: The Mumbai Police may file a supplementary chargesheet against 26/11 terror suspect Abu Jundal in the Nov 2008 attack in the city that claimed 166 lives in several coordinated strikes by the Pakistani terrorists in India's financial hub.

Sayeed Zabiuddin Ansari, also known as Abu Hamza and Abu Jundal, who has confessed to be among the six men tasked with guiding the ten Pakistani terrorists during the three-day-attack on Mumbai from a Karachi control room, was arrested at Delhi airport on June 21 on his arrival from Saudi Arabia.

He was reportedly extradited from Saudi Arabia though authorities have not confirmed it officially.

Reports said the supplementary chargesheet is about 3000 pages implicating him in the terror strike.

Lone surviving gunman of the Mumbai attack, Ajmal Kasab identified Jundal as a handler in the attack and one who taught them to speak in Hindi.

Earlier in September, the Delhi police had filed a chargesheet against Jundal.

He reportedly admitted that terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) was behind the attack.
