Nashik: Terror suspect and 26/11 handler Abu Jundal's police custody was extended till October 3 by a Nashik court on Monday.

Jundal was produced before Chief Judicial Magistrate A D Sawant amid tight security on Monday morning.

Special Public Prosecutor Ajay Misar said Jundal's interrogation so far had elicited some information about his links with terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba.

Jundal is in ATS custody here since September 11 in connection with a 2010 case, in which Maharashtra ATS had raided a house in Satpur near here and arrested Bilal Shaikh alias Lalbaba, an alleged Lashkar member, and seized RDX and some other explosives.

According to Anti-Terrorism Squad, Bilal Shaikh and Himayat Baig, an accused in German Bakery blast, had undertaken a race of Nashik's Maharashtra Police Academy and Devlali cantonment area, for planning an attack. Jundal was a party to this conspiracy, ATS said.
