The trial of suspected LeT operative Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks case will start here from May 4.

“The sessions court (which is conducting the trial) today issued production warrant against him,” said a crime branch official.

Mumbai crime branch took Jundal’s custody from Delhi police in the 26/11 case on July 21, 2012, and filed a charge sheet in October. The chargesheet says he was a key conspirator who was in the `control room’ in Pakistan during the attacks and gave instructions to the terrorists.

Jundal was arrested in Delhi following his deportation from Saudi Arabia in June 2012. Currently he is lodged in the Arthur Road jail in Mumbai.
