Abu Jundal, a suspected terrorist of the banned Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) and one of the masterminds of Mumbai terror attack, was on Thursday chargesheeted by the NIA which accused him of making recruitment for the Pakistan-based terror outfit.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) submitted its charge sheet before a designated court in Patiala House against Jundal, whose actual name is Sayed Zabiuddin, under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. In its charge sheet, the NIA alleged that Jundal during 2011 and 2012 made “deliberate attempts for recruiting different persons through internet for joining the LeT and carry out terror activities in India.”

“He [Jundal] also attempted to send monetary support for the purpose of motivating accused persons earlier charged with cases of terrorism in Maharashtra,” it added.

Jundal was deported by Saudi Arabia in June last.
