New Delhi, June 26 (IANS) The Mumbai police Tuesday moved an application in a Delhi court seeking the custody of Abu Jindal alias Zabiuddin Ansari, a key suspect in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack.
Jindal, an Indian mastermind of the attacks and an alleged member of the Indian Mujahideen group, was arrested at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here June 21 after his deportation from Saudi Arabia.
The court has directed the Delhi police to file a reply on the application by June 27.
Jindal was one of six people who were holed up in a “control room” in Karachi and directing the audacious Mumbai attack by 10 Pakistani terrorists in November 2008. The carnage left 166 people dead.
He was one of those who were heard on radio intercepts directing the terrorists to their targets in Mumbai and telling them who to kill. He had trained the killers to speak Hindi.
