    Really wonder what good is all his information coming out is gonna be of. Send dossiers that Pakis will deny?
    Indian governement requires to wear " choories".


    MUMBAI: The arrest of 10 LeT members by Pakistan's Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) immediately after 26/11 was eyewash, Zabiuddin Ansari, alias Abu Jundal, has told the crime branch of the police.

    After international pressure, particularly American, mounted on their government, Pakistani army officers told LeT operatives to clear out of training camps since raids were likely to begin, Jundal said during his interrogation. "On the army's directions, training camps of the Bait-ul-Mujahideen in Muridke and Rawalpindi were cleared. The FIA, then, just to show something like genuine action, arrested the 10 LeT men, including Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, Abu al-Qama and Zarrar Shah. It was drama. Instead of jail, they were kept in luxurious guesthouses with all amenities," Jundal told the police. "All 10 were released soon, told to remain underground and not speak to the media."

    About the camps, a police officer said, "Jundal told us that in the first week of December 2008, Pakistani army officers contacted LeT second-in-command Yusuf Muzammil, who in turn told the outfit's members to wind up the camps."

    Jundal's revelation can be a major embarrassment for Pakistan, which has consistently denied its role in the November 26, 2008, terror attack on Mumbai. But this is not the first time that a terrorist has spilled the beans on Pakistan's role in the episode. That the country's state actors were involved in it was made amply clear through the accounts of Ajmal Kasab, the lone survivor among the 26/11 attackers, and the Pakistani American double agent David Headley.

    Jundal had earlier mentioned the names of Pakistani army officers like Major Iqbal and Colonel Shah, who played a key role in the planning, coordination and execution of 26/11 along with LeT commanders. Meanwhile, Mumbai Police are upgrading their list of wanted terror suspects as Jundal has revealed quite a few names of Indians who have taken shelter in Pakistan.

    So who was not aware of it in India ? No one. Things are so f00ked up in Pakistan that It has become so difficult for them to act against terrorists and Indians are the only Kafirs they denounce or not cooperate with not only because of animosity due to previous wars and Kashmir but because of some self invented religious/bigoted reference they love to invoke. So the end result any promise of Islamic republic of Pakistan is always a bluff and pretence.

    Nobody in India has any doubt, No body even doubts who is behind Indian Muja-effers. Its the government which wastes time in dossiers which will keep being rejected by Pakis as not enough proof. The dossiers only help pak cover up evidence and also understand the leak points and plug it. Dossiers are helping pakis get smarter in conducting terror activities as it gives away our capabilities.

    Who is leaking the details of Abu Jundal's interrogation?

    It is very important that the information from him needs to be kept under wraps and quickly corroborated by independent sources. If need be the help of friendly nations be used. With every little detail being splashed cross the newspapers, it would not be surprising if Pakistan/ISI would be busy covering their tracks.

    If the officers at NIA think that by leaking the details they are scoring brownie points then somebody needs to pull them up and shift them out to a department like DAVP.

    These are not leaks but purposely released information. Part of the effort to keep pressure on Pakistan, if at all.

    I hope you are correct -- but a piece meal approach with our western neighbour does not work.

    I second that and add to the list entire infrastructure of all defence forces and internal security establishment. After that get hold of each and every person responsible for planning and executing attacks on Bharatvarsh and hold the trial if found guilty execute them in the open air ground.

    Investigators get inside view of 26/11 control room



    Zabiuddin Ansari to be produced before Delhi magistrate on July 5, as Mumbai Police pitch for custody
    Zabiuddin Ansari, the Maharashtra-born 26/11 suspect deported from Saudi Arabia and now held in New Delhi, has provided investigators with their first direct evidence on how Lashkar-e-Taiba controllers directed the 10-man assault team which attacked Mumbai in November 2008, intelligence sources have told The Hindu .

    Key among them, sources claimed Mr. Ansari as telling them, was Sajid Mir, the Lashkar’s top commander for transnational operations — the man believed to have had overall control of the operation. David Headley, the Pakistani-American jihadist convicted last year for his role in the undercover reconnaissance operation that preceded the attack, told the Federal Bureau of Investigation Mir had worked closely with Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate.

    Muzammil Butt, a Lashkar operative previously in charge of the terrorist group’s Jammu and Kashmir operations, provided military guidance to the assault team as the attack unfolded, the sources said Ansari had told them. Butt at one stage told two terrorists that Indian troops who had surrounded the building might try to bring it down with explosives, saying similar tactics were used in Jammu and Kashmir.

    Lashkar ideologue Zaki-ur-Rahman Lakhvi is also said to have been in the control room, along with his lieutenant Mazhar Iqbal, who used the alias Abu al-Qama. Lashkar’s computer expert Abdul Wajid — who used the code-name Zarar Shah — supervised the working of the control room.

    Ansari, intelligence sources said, claims to have been recruited to the plot in the summer of 2008, and at first charged with giving the assault team Hindi lessons — part of a plan to pass off the operation as the work of Indian jihadists. In his testimony to Indian investigators, surviving 26/11 assault team member Muhammad Ajmal Kasab had said his 10-man unit was given lessons by a man they knew by the alias ‘Abu Jundal’.

    The control room played a key role in keeping the sometimes-befuddled attackers on track. Instead of immediately opening fire inside the Taj Hotel, for example, the terrorists paused to admire the surroundings. ‘There are computers here with 30-inch screens,” one said. “It’s amazing, the windows are huge,” another added, “it’s got two kitchens, a bath and a little shop.”

    Bhat, however, responded with firm orders: “How hard is it to throw a grenade? Just pull the pin and throw it.”

    Police accounts of Ansari’s custodial statements — which cannot, under Indian law, be used as evidence against him — closely mirror testimony earlier given by Headley to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

    Produced in court

    Ansari, legal sources said, had been produced in the court of chief metropolitan magistrate Vinod Yadav late on the evening of July 21, hours after he landed in New Delhi. The Delhi Police did not, however, inform Mr. Yadav of the 26/11 charges, and sought custodial remand of Ansari on the basis of a 2011 First Information Report relating to offences under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, the Explosives Act and the Passports Act.

    “He had really dishevelled hair and a long beard,” a witness told The Hindu . “Frankly, he looked more like a drug addict dragged off the street than a top terrorist,” a witness told The Hindu .

    Meanwhile, Mr. Yadav gave the Delhi Police a week to respond to an application moved by their Mumbai counterparts seeking Ansari’s custody. Mumbai’s chief metropolitan magistrate on Tuesday issued a warrant saying Ansari was required to be produced before his court, for multiple terrorism-related charges.

    National Investigation Agency officials, who are also handling the 26/11 case, said they had no immediate plans to seek custody of Ansari.
