Abu Jundal was preparing new attack, gathering terrorists for LeT
Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) may be plotting another strike against India, Syed Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal, one of the handlers of the 26/11 terrorists, is said to have told interrogators during initial questioning.
Jundal had shifted his base to Saudi Arabia and at his handlers’ behest was engaged in “talent spotting” over phone for the new plot, sources said, adding that he had also been assigned the task of providing legal aid to the Lashkar and Indian Mujahideen terrorists arrested in India. LeT is busy creating new modules because of a crackdown in Pakistan.
A team probing the September 19, 2010 Jama Masjid attack, led by DCP Sanjeev Yadav and ACP Ashok Chand, had found that Indian Mujahideen boss Ahmad Zarar Siddi Bappa alias Shahrukhused to make frequent calls to Saudi Arabia. “We will question him on whether Shahrukh used to call him as well from India,” said a source.
