New Delhi: A special NIA court here today issued a production warrant for July 2 against suspected top Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorist Abu Jundal, one of the alleged masterminds of 26/11 attacks in Mumbai.

District Judge I S Mehta was scheduled to hear arguments on charges in the case in which Jundal was chargesheeted by National Investigation Agency (NIA) for allegedly conspiring to carry out terror activities in India.

The court issued production warrant after Jundal, who is presently lodged in Arthur Road jail in Mumbai, was not produced before it.

Earlier, Jundal's counsel M S Khan had moved a plea, contending that Jundal is lodged in Mumbai and his physical presence was essential here in order to ensure “fair and reasonable opportunity” to the accused to enable his lawyer to defend him properly under his instructions.
