The arrest of 26/11 accused Abu Jundal, 36, will help in exposing Pakistan’s role in the 26/11 terror strikes in Mumbai, the city police said on Monday.
“We will get his custody soon,” said Himanshu Roy, joint commissioner (crime). Officials said this arrest was a breakthrough because Jundal was in the control room at Karachi and was likely to have known the ISI and army officials who were part of the conspiracy. During the attack, the Indian agencies monitoring the conversations between the 26/11 attackers and their handlers in Pakistan began suspecting that an Indian was in the control room, giving instructions to the terrorists because of the use of Hindi.
“Suspicion first came up because he was using Hindi words such as prashasan,” said an official on anonymity.
