Magistrate orders Jundal's production in Delhi court tomorrow

Mumbai, Oct 3, 2012, (PTI) :

A local court today ordered that 26/11 handler Abu Jundal, in custody of Maharashtra police, be produced before Tees Hazari court in Delhi tomorrow in a case of conspiring to carry out terror attacks in India.

The order was passed by Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate P S Rathod on a plea made by National Investigation Agency (NIA) that they needed the custody of Syed Zabiuddin Ansari alias Jundal for interrogation in the case.

NIA had filed an FIR on June 8 against Jundal and his accomplice Fayyaz Kagzi for being part of terror organisation and conspiring to organise explosives for certain LeT and IM operatives to carry out terror attacks in Mumbai and Delhi.


Special Public prosecutor Rohini Salian filed two applications, one by ATS and the other by NIA seeking production of Jundal in the Delhi court.

The ATS pleaded that they had received three production warrants from Delhi court against Jundal. However, the Mumbai court rejected its plea saying these warrants are for Jundal's production in Delhi on October 12 and hence there was sufficient time left.

But the court considered the application filed by NIA which contended that it would seek Jundal's custody after he was produced before the Tees Hazari court. Accordingly, the Mumbai court directed that Jundal be produced in Delhi court tomorrow.

The prosecutor pleaded that Jundal may be taken to Delhi immediately as the authorities feared about his security in Arthur Road Central jail.

Meanwhile, a Nasik court, where Jundal was produced this morning, remanded him in judicial custody till October 17 in a case involving conspiracy to attack Maharashtra Police Academy. He was then brought to Mumbai and produced in a local court in the 26/11 terror attack case.
