LeT financed Jundal`s stay, operations in Saudi Arabia: Police

Pakistan-based terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba financed the procurement of work permits by Mumbai terror attacks suspect Abu Jundal for the `recruited` Indian youths in Saudi Arabia, according to investigators.



Mumbai: Pakistan-based terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba financed the procurement of work permits by Mumbai terror attacks suspect Abu Jundal for the `recruited` Indian youths in Saudi Arabia, according to investigators.

"Jundal`s main job was to recruit Indians in Saudi Arabia and he got work permits for them as soon as they were indoctrinated," said a police officer privy to the ongoing interrogation of Jundal by Mumbai crime branch on Saturday.

The work-permits helped the youths to avoid coming under the scanner of Saudi authorities, the officer said.

LeT had, in fact, funded Jundal`s entire one-year stay in Saudi Arabia, said, adding he had traveled there on a tourist visa.

"Jundal told us that he was paid in Saudi itself, and he never did any job for earning his livelihood," he said.

Jundal was arrested in the Mumbai terror attacks case on July 21 this year, after he was brought here from Delhi.

Apart from Mumbai attacks, Jundal is also wanted in other cases in Maharashtra: Aurangabad Arms haul case, 2010 German Bakery blast in Pune and the conspiracy to attack Nashik Police Academy.
