Court refuses to grant custody of Jundal to Mumbai police

The Mumbai crime branch will not get custody of 26/11 accused Zabaiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal before 5 July, which is till how long the Delhi police have been granted his custody.

Replying to the plea filed by the Mumbai police on Monday, the Magistrate Vinod Yadav said that it would not be appropriate for the Court to hand over Jundal's custody to the Mumbai crime branch at this stage as the Delhi police were still in the middle of interrogating him.

The Mumbai crime branch moved the chief metropolitan magistrate to seek Jundal's custody on Monday as it wanted to question him for his role in 26/11 terror attack that killed 166 Mumbaikars.

Jundal was handed over to the National Intelligence Agency on Tuesday, where he is being questioned by NIA and IB sleuths on his role in various terror attacks in the national capital and other states since 2006.

The Mumbai police filed a fresh application for custody of Jundal which will be heard on 5 July. The Delhi police is expected to apply for an extension of Jindal's custody on the same day.
