New Delhi: LeT operative Abu Jundal, who is under the custody of the Delhi Police, has claimed that the cartridges used by the 26/11 attackers was given to them by an ISI officer.
As per reports on Friday, Jundal, who played a key role in planning the deadly Mumbai terror attacks, said during interrogation that an ISI operative by the name Major Sameer Ali came to Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) to hand over two cartons of ak-47 bullets to the men who were to carry out the attack on India’s financial nerve centre.
Importantly, Jundal had, earlier, said that Major Sameer Ali visited the 26/11 terror attack control room set up in Karachi to coordinate the attack and pass on instructions to the boys on the ground.
However, it is not the first time that Sameer Ali’s name has come up during the 26/11 probe. Pakistani-American LeT operative David Headley too had given information about Major Sameer`s role in the 26/11 attacks.
When the Mumbai attack was over, Major Sameer told all those present in the control room to disperse and go underground, reports said.
Jundal was arrested after he was deported from Saudi Arabia. He was produced in a Delhi court yesterday, which extended his custody with Delhi Police by another 15 days.
