The Mumbai Sessions court on Wednesday issued non-bailable warrants (NBW) against 12 more terrorists in the 26/11 case. These warrants were issued while the court was hearing the charges against alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba operative Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal.

In the past, the court had issued NBWs against 35 people while conducting the trial against Ajmal Kasab. The number of wanted accused has now risen to 47. Amongst those against whom NBWs have been issued include state players like — Major Sameer, Sajid Mir alias Vashi and commander Yakub. Jundal had told the police that Sajid was present in the control room at the time of the attack.

Jundal was deported from Saudi Arabia in June 2012 for his alleged role in the 26/11 case. Jundal had told interrogators that he had taught Hindi to the ten terrorists who carried out the attack on the Indian soil. He also familiarised them with the topography of Mumbai.

In his confessional statement, he had alleged that LeT training camps enjoyed full support of the state players including — local, federal police and paramilitary organisations in Pakistan. Jundal had also given details about the aerial attacks planned by the ISI on the Indian soil and also the locations of various training camps in Pakistan.

Last month, the Mumbai police had submitted draft charges against Jundal charging him on 22 different counts including waging war against the nation, criminal conspiracy, murder, attempt to murder, cheating, forgery and other sections of the Indian Penal Code.

Jundal is also accused the 2006 Aurangabad arms haul case, Nashik police academy attack conspiracy case and 2010 German Bakery blast case in Pune.
