The Delhi Police has filed a charge sheet against the key handler of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, Abu Jundal, accusing him of being involved in terror activities across India to avenge atrocities against Muslims, particularly those committed during 2002 Gujarat riots.
The charge sheet filed by the Special Cell in the court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vidya Prakash, also said that Jundal disclosed that he along with LeT chief Zaki-ur-Rehman alias Lakhvi, monitored the 26/11 attacks from a control room set up in Malir in Karachi, Pakistan.
The charge sheet said after being apprehended from the IGI airport on June 21, Jundal during questioning admitted to his involvement in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack.
Delhi Police said this is in a supplementary charge sheet in the Jama Masjid blast case in which 11 alleged members of militant outfit Indian Mujahideen were charge sheeted earlier.
The investigators said during the probe it became evident that 30-year-old Jundal was also involved in the Jama Masjid blast case.
In the charge sheet, police said that Jundal has also stated that he entered into terror activities to avenge the atrocities suffered by Muslims in India particularly during the 2002 riots that followed after the Godhra train carnage.
Jundal said 10 persons had left for Mumbai in September 2008 as well but the boat in which they were travelling broke down and they returned to Karachi and stayed at Kaiyadabad area.

The charge sheet said Jundal stated that one of the LeT operatives, Asim alias Abu Kahajo, the main handler of 10 terrorists involved in Mumbai terror attack, blamed failure of intended operation in September 2008 on selection of wrong time and the bad situation of Moon.
