Mumbai attacks 2008
New Delhi, Jul 6: Did AK-47 bullets used by the terrorists during 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks come from a Pakistan government agency? If the confessional statement of arrested LeT operative Abu Jundal is to be believed, it is so.

Jundal told security agencies during his interrogation that suspected ISI operative Major Sameer Ali had visited Lashkar-e-Taiba terror camp Baitul Mujahideen in Pakistan occupied Kashmir weeks before the Mumbai attacks.

Sources said Jundal confessed that Sameer came to Baitul Mujahideen and handed over two cartons of AK rifles cartridges and all these bullets were used by Ajmal Kasab and nine other terrorists involved in the 26/11 strikes.

Sameer also provided logistical support to the 10 attackers to get marine training in Karachi harbour that helped them sail to Mumbai to carry out the country's worst terrorist strike which claimed 166 lives.

Jundal even visited the Rawalpindi jail to meet LeT operational commander Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi, who is lodged there along with six others arrested from Baitul Mujahideen after the 2008 attack, sources said.

A senior ISI officer Colonel Hamza, who helped Jundal by providing shelter and finance, also ensured that he was never apprehended by any Pakistani agency.

It was Colonel Hamza, who helped Jundal to travel to Saudi Arabia in Apr 2011.
