New Delhi: The judicial custody of 26/11 key handler Abu Jundal was on Friday extended till November 21 by a Delhi court. Jundal was produced before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vidya Parkash in pursuance of the warrant issued for his production in the court on Friday.

CMM slated November 21 to commit the case to a sessions court as Jundal has been charge-sheeted under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, Explosive Substances Act and various other provisions of the Indian Penal Code, which are exclusively triable by a court of sessions.

The alleged LeT terrorist was brought back to Delhi by the Gujarat ATS on November 11 and was remanded back in judicial custody by a magisterial court.

The court had given Jundal's custody to Gujarat ATS after the probe agency told the court that he is wanted for interrogation in the 2006 Karanawati Express train blast case in Ahmedabad in which he is alleged to be one of the main conspirators and was declared a proclaimed offender.

Jundal alias Syed Zaibuddin has been charge sheeted by the Delhi Police for his role in various terror activities across India to avenge the alleged atrocities against Muslims, particularly those committed during the 2002 Gujarat riots.
The charge sheet said after his arrest from the IGI Airport here on June 21 this year, Jundal, during questioning, had admitted to his role in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack and disclosed that he along with LeT chief Zaki-ur-Rehman alias Lakhvi, monitored the 26/11 attacks from a control room set up at Malir in Karachi, Pakistan.
