The Tihar Jail authorities on Monday were asked by a Delhi court to produce LeT terrorist and 26/11 Mumbai attack key handler Abu Jundal before it in a case lodged by the NIA against him for allegedly conspiring to launch terror strikes across the country.
District Judge I S Mehta, who had on November 3 ordered for Jundal’s production before it for today, issued production warrant against him for tomorrow after he could not appear before it, the court sources said.
Jundal was in judicial custody in connection with an FIR lodged by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) following unearthing of a Lashkar-e-Toiba’s (LeT) conspiracy for terror strikes across the country.
Gujarat ATS had earlier taken Jundal’s custody for questioning on his alleged role in the 2006 Karanawati Express train blast at Ahmedabad station. Jundal is alleged to be one of the main conspirators of the blast.
