New Delhi, June 2 (IANS) A court here on Monday issued a warrant for Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Abu Jundal, allegedly involved in terror attacks in the country, to be brought before it.


District Judge I.S. Mehta in an in-camera proceeding issued the production warrant against Jundal and posted the matter for further hearing July 2.

Jundal has been charge-sheeted by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for offences punishable under the Indian Penal Code and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act for allegedly attempting to recruit people through internet for joining the banned outfit.

Jundal was one of the key plotters of the 2008 Mumbai attack and is currently lodged in Arthur Road Jail, Mumbai in connection with a conspiracy to launch terror strikes in India.

He was deported from Saudi Arabia June 25, 2012.

The NIA has said Jundal took part in three training courses at the LeT’s camps and came in touch with top operatives, including outfit chief Hafiz Saeed, Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and Zarar Shah.

He allegedly taught Hindi to 10 militants, including Ajmal Kasab, involved in the terror strike in Mumbai.
