LeT operative Ansari clarifies he is not Abu Jundal

 Lashkar-e-Toiba operative Zaibuddin Ansari, the Indian link in the 26/11 terror attacks, on Monday made an unsuccessful bid to stall the proceedings of the recording of evidence of David Coleman Headley.

Ansari sought that his application on documents, vis-à-vis the Pakistani-American, be decided first.  
Ansari, who appeared from the Arthur Road prison through video-conferencing, also said that he was not Abu Jundal as was being referred to. “My plea to the court is pending,” he told Additional Session Judge G A Sanap.

He had objected to police’s application seeking documents pertaining to Headley from a NIA court in Delhi. 

To this, Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said, “He is trying to delay the proceedings.” Ansari also said that he had withdrawn his lawyer.

However, I A Khan, a lawyer present in the case said that he would like to represent Ansari. The judge then asked him whether he agrees for it, to which Ansari gave his nod. But Ansari again rose up and said that he was being framed, to which the lawyer said that in the evening he would visit the jail and take the brief. Ansari still said that the charges that he was facing is false. “I want to challenge it in the Bombay High Court,” he said.
