Abu Jundal brought to Ahmedabad in 2006 train blast case
Ahmedabad: Gujarat ATS on Sunday brought Abu Jundal, alleged LeT operative and key handler of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, to the city in connection with the 2006 train blast at Ahmedabad railway station in which he is alleged to be one of the main conspirators.
"Following a Delhi Court granting us his custody till October 31, we have brought him here under proper security arrangements from Tihar Jail," said Gujarat ATS DIG Manoj Shashidhar.
A magistrate`s court in Delhi yesterday handed over Jundal alias Syed Zabiuddin`s custody to Gujarat ATS. He is one of the main conspirators behind Karnawati Express blast on February 19, 2006.
As per the Delhi court`s order Jundal had to be brought with proper security arrangements. He will be produced before a local court, following which ATS Gujarat can commence his custodial interrogation.
Jundal was brought to Ahmedabad on a flight.
At 1:45 am on February 19, 2006, an RDX-filled bomb exploded in coach SC-1 of the Mumbai-Ahmedabad Karnavati Express at platform number 2 at Kalupur railway station in the city, leaving more then 14 persons injured.
The case was initially investigated by Ahmedabad Crime Branch and was later handed over to the Anti-Terrorist Squad.
Four accused including Jundal had been shown as absconders in the case, while three persons--a railway police constable, a porter and another man called Aslam Kashmiri, were arrested.
Trial against them is underway in the sessions court here.
