Following an application for custody by the NIA, suspected 26/11 attack handler and Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist Syed Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal was on Thursday produced before the court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Delhi, and sent in judicial custody till October 12.
Ansari was brought back to Delhi from Mumbai — where he was in the custody of ATS, Nashik, for a probe into his alleged involvement in an attack on the Maharashtra Police Academy — after the ATS told the court that his police custody was no longer required for the investigation. The Mumbai court allowed him to be transferred to Delhi after the special prosecutor told the ACMM, Mumbai, that the CMM court in Delhi had issued a production warrant for Ansari for October 12. Further, the NIA had filed an application for his custody, following which the Special NIA court in Delhi had issued a production warrant for October 8.
Ansari will remain in judicial custody till October 12 and will be produced before the NIA court on October 8. The NIA had demanded his custody for investigation into a suspected conspiracy by the LeT to conduct strikes across India.
CMM Vidya Prakash also ordered that the documents relating to the case pending in Delhi be supplied to Ansari, who is a co-accused in 2010 Jama Masjid firing case.
