Alleged 26/11 conspirator and Lashkar-e-Taiba mastermind Abu Jundal has admitted in Delhi Police custody that the Lashkar-e-Taiba is imparting paragliding training to its recruits at its camp in Muzaffarabad in the Pakistan occupied Kashmir, according to reports.

Jundal also confessed using social networking site Facebook to hunt for recruits for his terror mission Saudi Arabia and India using nine accounts and email ids. He had reportedly opened one of the Facebook accounts in his real name, Zabiuddin Ansari, which caught the eye of investigating agencies.

He also said that paragliding has been made a part of the training curriculum of the LeT cadres. The police are verifying whether Jundal himself has received paragliding training. Officials haven't ruled it out completely as Jundal himself was in charge of training the 26/11 terrorists.

All people listed as friends in his accounts on the social networking site are now under surveillance, reports have said.
