More than 10 persons were arrested by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) for procuring and transporting a sizeable cache of arms and ammunition from an isolated spot in Aurangabad's Manmad on May 9, 2006.
Sources said Jundal, who was a key element in the conspiracy, was escorted to Lakhvi's care in Karachi by Shauqat after a 20-day journey that began in Gorakhpur. "Shauqat, according to Jundal, had precise knowledge of the route to Pakistan. He had arranged for everything from finances to food and beverages. The duo first went to Bangladesh, then crossed into Nepal, and finally went to Karachi," the officer said.
Jundal, who had directed the Mumbai carnage of 26/11 via satellite phone from a 'control room' in Karachi, was arrested by Delhi Police after deportation from Riyadh on June 21.
