Jundal to be produced before NIA court on Oct 8

October 04, 2012 15:21 IST

Key handler of 26/11 and Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorist Abu Jundal was on Thursday remanded in judicial custody by a Delhi court after the Mumbai Anti-Terrorism Squad produced him and stated that he was no longer wanted for interrogation in cases registered against him in Maharashtra.

Jundal was produced before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vidya Parkash by the Mumbai ATS and was sent to Tihar jail.

Mumbai ATS had secured his custody from the Delhi court earlier on July 21 for interrogation of his roles in the Aurangabad arms haul case, the 26/11 Mumbai mayhem, the German Bakery blast and the Nasik Academy attack.

Meanwhile, the National Investigation Agency told the CMM's court that a fresh production warrant for Jundal was issued by its designated court for October 8 while its earlier application for permission for his production before the NIA court is already pending before the CMM's court.

At this, the CMM ordered for Jundal's production before the NIA's designated court on October 8.

The NIA has been seeking Jundal's custody in connection with an FIR registered earlier this year, following unearthing of a Lashkar-e-Tayiba conspiracy for terror strikes across India.
