Don’t put me in Kasab’s cell, Jundal prays to HC

Abu Jundal, an alleged operative of terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba and a key handler during the 26/11 terror attacks, has approached Bombay High Court seeking that he should not be kept in solitary confinement in the same cell where Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab once stayed.

Jundal has been lodged in Arthur Road prison in central Mumbai. His cell was earlier occupied by Kasab, the lone arrested terrorist of 26/11 attacks, before he was executed at Pune’s Yerawada jail.

‘The applicant (Jundal) has been kept in solitary confinement since six months. Due to this he is depressed and thus not able to think clearly. Like all under-trials Jundal should also be kept in the common barracks and allowed certain privileges,’ the petition pleaded.
