Abu Jundal exposes Pakistan’s real face of terrorism

| |

abu-jundalAug 4, New Delhi: Exposing the real face of Pakistan,LeT operative and 26/11 Mumbai attack handler, Sayed Ansari alias Abu Jundal has told interrogators that arrest of 10 LeT members by Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) immediately after 26/11 was an eyewash. He also named four Indian operatives of Laskhar-e-Taiba (LeT) who have been in Pakistan for long.

Following the international pressure after 26/11,Pakistani army’s had launched an operation against LeT and raided its camps after the 26/11. However, the armymen had telephoned LeT bosses before the raids and told them to destroy the evidence, claimed Jundal, according to police.

A few weeks after 26/11 sleuths of Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had raided the control room and destroyed it.

Months later, when FIA raided Baitul Mujahideen camp,it had arrested LeT ‘commander’ Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and subsequently some more LeT handlers, police said.

Jundal’s revelation about the ‘friendly’ raids is vindication of the Indian security agencies stand in this regard.”LeT was informed in advance about the raids to be conducted by FIA and Pakistan Army. The action by FIA was a drama and just an eyewash. The arrested LeT men by the FIA were not kept in jail but in safe places,” the police officer said quoting Jundal.

About the camps, a police officer said, “Jundal told us that in the first week of December 2008, Pakistani army officers contacted LeT second-in-command Yusuf Muzammil, who in turn told the outfit’s members to wind up the camps.”

Jundal’s revelation can be a major embarrassment for Pakistan, which has consistently denied its role in the November 26, 2008, terror attack on Mumbai. But this is not the first time that a terrorist has spilled the beans on Pakistan’s role in the episode. That the country’s state actors were involved in it was made amply clear through the accounts of Ajmal Kasab, the lone survivor among the 26/11 attackers, and the Pakistani American double agent David Headley.

Abu Jundal has revealed  that four Indians were working for the banned terror outfit in Pakistan in 2006 and the raids conducted by the Army and Federal Investigation Agency on terror camps in that country after the 26/11 strike were farce.

“Elaborating the structure and functioning of the LeT in Pakistan, Jundal stated that in 2006 he had met four Indian nationals who introduced themselves as Abu Sherjil and Abu Zarar- from Beed district of Maharashtra -Abu Musad from Jammu and Abu Zaid, whose state Jundal does not know,” said a Mumbai crime branch official.

Jundal escaped to Pakistan via Bangladesh after the Maharashtra ATS had seized a huge arms haul in Aurangabad in 2006.

Jundal was arrested in the 26/11 case on July 21 by Mumbai Police after he was brought here from Delhi, where he was apprehended in another case after deported from Saudi Arabia.

Jundal is also wanted in other cases in Maharashtra including the 2006 arms haul case, 2010 German Bakery blast case and for hatching a conspiracy to attack Nashik Police Academy.
