Jundal to be named 26/11 key conspirator
City police would soon file a supplementary charge sheet in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks case, describing LeT operative Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal as one of the main conspirators who was briefed about the terror operation four months in advance by his bosses in Pakistan.

In the charge sheet, which is expected to be filed in a fortnight, the investigators would mention that Jundal, who had completed first year Masters of Arts in Hindi [MA-Hindi] course from Beed, was given a task of teaching Hindi to the arrested terrorist Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab and nine others, a senior crime branch officer said.

The terrorists were taught Hindi so that they could speak in this language at the time of terror strike, in a bid to divert the attention of Indian security agencies.

The charge sheet would also disclose face-to-face interaction of Kasab and Jundal inside the high security Arthur Road jail, where the lone surviving attacker is lodged, the officer said.

It would also comprise of Jundal's confession wherein he is understood to have given a deep insight into Lashkar-e-Taiba's role in the 2008 Mumbai terror strike.

'We will file the supplementary charge sheet by 20 October,' the official said adding that, 'final touches are being given to it.'

The charge sheet would also dwell upon how Jundal had issued instructions to two terrorists holed up inside Nariman House.
