Ahmedabad: Gujarat police have sought the custody of suspected terrorist Syed Zabiuddin alias Abu Jundal, arrested on June 21 at IGI airport in Delhi, as he is wanted in two cases being probed by the state Anti-terrorism Squad.

"We were the first one to disclose his name. Our ATS is in touch with Delhi police to bring Jundal here, we have formally put in our request," Director General of Police Chitranjan Singh said here.

Jundal, who was allegedly involved in 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, is wanted by Gujarat ATS in connection with the 2006 blast at Kalupur railway station. The other case from Gujarat against him pertains to his role in recruiting youths from state for terror training camps.

"First this man shall be with the Delhi police, thereafter with Mumbai police and afterwards we will bring him to Gujarat," Singh told reporters here.

"He shall be brought in connection with a blast case at Kalupur railway station, and his role in recruiting youths and sending them to become terrorists," he said.
