Earlier, LeT operative and 26/11 handler Sayed Ansari alias Abu Jundal had revealed that the terror organisation has plans to carry out at least 10 more attacks across India, for which, he had expressed his willingness to participate, police said.

"Though our case is that he is the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative and he actively participated in the 26/11 case, his admission to be a member of the terror outfit during our interrogation is very significant development for us," a senior police official said on Friday.

The 31-year-old terror suspect had claimed that the LeT has planned at least 10 more strikes across India in the next few years, the official added.

"Jundal claimed he wanted to participate in all these attacks, though he is not aware of the targets," the official added. Jundal was arrested in the 26/11 case on July 21 after he was brought to Mumbai from Delhi, where he was apprehended in an another case.
