Lashkar gave first lessons in terrorism to Jundal in Nepal

July 1, 2012 - New Delhi

The Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) is reported to have given Sayed Zabiuddin alias Abu Jundal, a prize catch in 26/11 terror case, his first lessons in terrorism in Nepal.

Claiming to be indoctrinated after the post-Godhra riots in Gujarat in 2002, 30-year-old Jundal is reported to have told his interrogators that he was introduced to 'jehad' by Aslam Kashmiri, a resident of Hasplote in Thanamandi of Rajouri in Jammu region.

According to his interrogation report submitted to the Ministry of Home Affairs, Zabiuddin said that four youths from Maharashtra and Gujarat were handed over to Aslam Kashmiri for exfiltration through Poonch region in 2004, but they were killed by Army raising suspicions about Kashmiri's role.

Official sources said today Aslam Kashmiri again approached Zabiuddin and Fayaz Kagzi and asked them to accompany him for arms training but the killing of four youths had raised doubts that he could have been working for Army.

This prompted Aslam Kashmiri putting them through to LeT high command in Pakistan on phone as a proof about the genuineness that he was working for the terror group, Zabiuddin told his interrogators.

After this, Zabiuddin, a resident of Beed in Maharashtra, along with four people left for Nepal where they received training in arms and manufacturing of Improvised Explosive Devices (IED).
