FBI may come to India for Jundal

The Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI] is expected to visit India soon, to interrogate Abu Jundal. Sources have told Millennium Post that this is because many American nationals were killed during the 26/11 attack. Other security agencies from London may also visit India to question Jundal on the Olympics terror threats.

Sources in the police have also pointed out that there might be a connection between the Indian Mujahuddin and the dreaded al-Qaeda. Recently, a terror threat from Al Qaeda rattled organisers of the Olympic games that are beginning from 27 July in London this year,' sources said.

Meanwhile, the Tis Hazari court, on Thursday, has extended the custody of Abu Jundal with the Delhi police's special cell for 15 more days.

There are other investigating agencies like Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squads [ATS], crime branch of Mumbai, National Investigating Agencies [NIA], West Bengal and the Gujarat police are also waiting for the custody of Abu Jundal. On this, the judge asked to give an appropriate reason of demanding Jundal's custody for 15 more days.

According to sources, Delhi police said that during interrogation till now, Abu Jundal had revealed many crucial information. Based on that, few teams are conducting raids at various parts of the country. If the custody is handed over to any other security agency, the investigation by the special cell of Delhi Police would suffer.


While he was training 12 terrorists in Muridke in Pakistan for the 26/11 terror attack, Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal was getting continuous information about Mumbai from David Coleman Headley who was on a recce of the metropolis as a Lashkar-e-Taiba spy.

Revealing this to investigators, Jundal has said that 12 terrorists and not 10 had been selected to attack Mumbai.

Pakistani-American Headley was passing on 'day-to-day' information about Mumbai to LeT chief Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, who in turn provided it to Jindal, who was training the terrorists at Muridke from 2007 till just before the attack on 26 November 2008, investigators said.

Headley has told a US court that he had done a recce of proposed targets ahead of the 26 November 2008 attacks.  Elaborating on Headley's role, Jundal told investigators that he conspired with LeT and Pakistani military officers to launch the Mumbai attacks and other terrorist activities.


Terrorism is a common threat for both India and Pakistan and a blame game will not help, Pakistan Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani said Thursday.

Responding to questions at a press conference with Indian Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai after their two-day talks, Jilani said Pakistan was ready for a joint investigation with India into the disclosures made by Abu Jindal, the Indian arrested here for his role in 26/11.

'Terrorism is a common threat to both India and Pakistan because citizens in both countries are facing terror. If we blame each other like this, it will have no benefit and we will reach no conclusion,' Jilani said.  'I, my government and my people are very serious about this... Terrorism is a serious issue. We need serious and sincere efforts to resolve it,' he said.

Jilani added: 'We will investigate this matter. We will even be willing to offer joint investigation in this matter.'

Jilani's response came after Mathai said evidence on Jundal had been shared with Pakistan.
