Aurangabad arms case: MCOCA court says there was plan to eliminate Modi


New Delhi, July 28: Stating that there was a conspiracy to eliminate Narendra Modi, the then Chief Minister of Gujarat, a special MCOCA court on Thursday held Abu Jundal and others guilty in the Aurangabad arms haul case.

Abu Jundal who was deported to India from Saudi Arabia on the charge that he had given Hindi tuitions to the terrorists who attacked Mumbai on 26/11 was also charged in the Aurangabad arms haul case.

After hearing the matterat length, the court had reserved its order against 22 accused persons. The prosecution had argued that Jundal and others had in 2006 procured a huge amount of arms to eliminate leaders such as Modi and Praveen Togadia in order to take revenge for the Gujarat riots.

However, their plans were foiled in 2008 when the Maharashtra ATS based on a tip off arrested several persons on May 8, 2006 near Aurangabad.

The ATS also seized a huge cache of arms which were being transported in a Tata Sumo and Indica. One of the vehicles was being driven by Jundal alias Zabiuddin Ansari. The ATS was however, not able to arrest Jundal as he managed to escape.

Jundal is said to have escaped to Bangladesh from where he left for Pakistan. He rose in the ranks of the Lashkar-e-Taiba at an astronomical pace.

He was roped in to give the ten terrorists Hindi tuitions so that they would look like locals when they enter Mumbai to stage the attack. He was finally deported from Saudi Arabia to India two years after the attacks of 26/11.
