ISI operative gave cartridges for 26/11: Abu Jundal

New Delhi: Alleged 26/11 planner Abu Jundal has claimed that a suspected ISI operative gave terrorists the cartridges for carrying out the 26/11 terror attacks.

Sources said that during his interrogation, Jundal said that ISI operative Major Sameer Ali handed over two cartons of AK-47 bullets to the 26/11 attackers. He also said that the ISI operative came to Pakistan occupied Kashmir to hand over the bullets.

Earlier, Jundal had also said that Major Sameer Ali visited the Karachi control room of the 26/11 attacks when the mayhem engulfed Mumbai and gave several instructions to LeT 'commander' Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi.

Pakistani-American LeT operative David Headley too had given information about Major Sameer's role in the 26/11 attacks.

Another suspected ISI officer Sajid Mir, who was also involved in the Mumbai attacks and conspiracy to carry out other terror acts in India, helped Ajmal Kasab and nine other terrorists involved in the 26/11 strikes, to get training in Baitul Mujahideen.

Mir was a key motivator and organiser of the country's worst terrorist attack which claimed 166 lives, Jundal told interrogators.

When the Mumbai attack was over, Major Sameer told all those present in the control room to disperse and go underground, the sources said.
