 A Delhi court today fixed April 21 for commencement of arguments on framing of charges against Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) terrorist Abu Jundal, one of the masterminds of the 26/11 attacks.

District Judge I S Mehta posted the case for April 21 in which Jundal was chargesheeted by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for allegedly carrying out terror activities in India.

Jundal, who is also known as Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari, is presently lodged in Arthur Road jail in Mumbai in connection with an alleged conspiracy to launch terror strikes in the country.

Jundal was chargesheeted by NIA for offences punishable under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act for allegedly attempting to recruit persons through Internet for joining banned outfit, LeT, and carrying out terror activities in India.

In its charge sheet, the NIA had said that in and around 2005, Jundal along with his absconding associate Fayyaz Kagzi had joined LeT and in November 2005, they went to Nepal to meet LeT commander Abdul Aziz and received a three-day training of bomb assembling and IED making from him.

It had also claimed that after returning to India, Jundal fled to Pakistan via Bangladesh and stayed in Karachi and in LeT's headquarters in Muridke.

He did three training courses in LeT training camp and came in touch with LeT top operatives, including its chief Hafiz Saeed, Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and Zarar Shah, NIA had alleged.
