Kasab identifies Abu Jundal in jail, says he was a key plotter

New Delhi, Aug 10: The lone surviving gunman of 26/11, Ajmal Kasab, was on Thursday night confronted with terror suspect Abu Jundal at the Arthur Road Jail in Mumbai and he identified the latter as “one of the main conspirators” behind the attacks in Mumbai.

After the Maharashtra government gave permission to bring the two face to face, the Crime Branch of the Mumbai police took Jundal to the high-security jail, where Kasab has been lodged in a bomb-proof egg-shaped cell since 2008.

The two were interrogated together for at least one-and-a-half hours. During the interface, Kasab said Jundal was one of the main conspirators, police sources said.

Earlier during interrogation, Jundal, one of the handlers of the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attack, made some revelations about training imparted to terrorists in Pakistan. He allegedly told the police that he had taught Hindi to the 26/11 attackers.

Jundal was allegedly in contact with two terrorists during the siege of Chabad House, a Jewish outreach centre, on November 26, 2008.

Jundal also said he had met Lashkar-e-Taiba operative David Headley, a co-accused in the 26/11 case.
