The Mumbai police crime branch will try to convince a Delhi court once again on to give them the custody of 26/11 handler Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal. They had failed to convince the court last week.

Abu Jundal's custody granted to Delhi police's special cell ends today. However, there is little likelihood of the crime branch team succeeding this time either.

A senior crime branch official said the team was sent with a public prosecutor to present their claim for the transfer custody in the November 2008 terror attack case, which the crime branch is investigating.


Meanwhile, there are reports in the media that Abu Jundal has told investigators that 12, and not 10, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists had been trained for the 26/11 attacks.

Now, the Indian police is trying to figure out who the other two terrorists who did not come to Mumbai though there was plan to send them as well. Jundal told the investigators that due to last minute plan change the two were not sent to India by the LeT.
