New Delhi: Abu Jundal, the alleged Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) operative who handled the 26/11 attackers, continues to sing before the Indian investigators.

The Special Cell of Delhi Police, which is interrogating Jundal, is believed to have learnt that the LeT operative used nine emails and carried four international SIM cards brought from Saudi Arabia and Pakistan to coordinate his alleged terror-related activities.

During the interrogation, he had told the investigators that he used different SIM cards to avoid getting traced by the intelligence agencies and to stay in touch with the Pakistan-based masterminds of the Mumbai terror attacks.

Abu Jundal alias Syed Zabiuddin, who was nabbed by Delhi Police, has admitted his active role in the 26/11 attack, saying he had worked in close tandem with terror mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi.

During his interrogation, Jundal confessed his role in the country's worst terror attack and admitted that he was present in the LeT control room in Karachi and was giving direction to the 10 terrorists who carried out the strike.

After November 26, 2008, Jundal, a native of Beed district in Maharashtra, stayed in Pakistan for sometime before leaving to Saudi Arabia where he was working as a teacher.

He has at least ten aliases and the first tip-off about his presence in Saudia Arabia was given by a terrorist who was arrested in connection with the Jama Masjid blast. Jundal also stayed for sometime in Bangladesh.

It is believed that foreign intelligence agencies have helped to track down Jundal, who was wanted in several terror cases in Delhi, Maharashtra and Gujarat.

Jundal, a prize catch in 26/11 terror case, picked up his first lessons in terrorism when LeT terrorist Mohammed Aslam alias Aslam Kashmiri arranged for his arms training in Nepal in 2004.

Claiming to be indoctrinated after the post-Godhra riots in Gujarat in 2002, 30-year-old Jundal told interrogators that he was introduced to 'jihad' by Aslam Kashmiri, a resident of Hasplote in Thanamandi of Rajouri in Jammu region.

Jundal was arrested on his arrival from Saudi Arabia at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport by Delhi Police on June 21.

Separately, the NIA is reported to be currently conducting fresh raids in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Gujarat based on crucial leads provided by Jundal.
