New Delhi: India have repeated its assertion that 26/11 attacks were planned and supported by Pakistan. The Home Minister Mr P Chidambaram gave this information here based on revelations of Abu Jundal. Abu Jundal, known for playing major role in 26/11 attacks is providing vital information to Indian interrogators.
Chidambaram said, "Abu Jundal is an Indian, he was perhaps radicalized in India, I admit that. Equally, Pakistan should admit that Jundal did go to Pakistan and was in the control room as one of the masterminds of the (26/11) attacks." "Jundal had found a safe haven in Pakistan," he added.
According Jundal, around 26/11, the Lashkar camp was at Muzzaffarabad and later on it moved to Dulai near PoK. Sharing vital information he said a control room was set up near Karachi international airport. With the Google maps he has shown exact location of camps. Chidambaram said that without state support no such control room could have been set up.
After 26/11 due to Indian pressure, he was asked to move to Rawalpindi from Karachi. He further informed that Zaki-ur-Rahman Lakhvi was arrested by Pakistan another handler Muzameel took charge of Lashkar. Jundal was asked to recruit young poor Indian Muslims. According to plan, they were supposed to move to Saudi Arabia and then train them in Pakistan before finally sending them to India to launch terror attacks. During this time, he used nine facebook accounts for young recruits and other communications.
Meanwhile, Pakistan has refuted claims over its offering of protection or residence to Jundal. It has asked for more details to establish ISI or any other agencies role. India have also pointed out that Judal had escaped to Bangaldsh in 2006 and had entered Pakistan.
