Mumbai: In a key development, 26/11 handler Abu Jundal on Friday moved an application in court stating his desire to record his confession, media reports said.

Jundal has expressed his desire to record his confessions in connection to the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal,  Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist  was deported from Saudi Arabia to India in June, could lead to a major breakthrough by connecting the dots between the attacks in Mumbai and the men who planned them across the border in Pakistan.

This came a day after Jundal was confronted with Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving gunman from Pakistan in the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

According to reports, the two men were brought together at the Arthur Road jail on Thursday where Kasab is lodged and were quizzed by police for one-and-a-half hours.

Jundal had earlier allegedly told interrogators that he was Kasab's handler during the attack, and before that, he had taught Kasab and other attackers Hindi, and apprised them of the topography of targets.

Earlier,the Pakistan government had formally told India that the evidence given by it in connection to the 2008 Mumbai attacks is not admissible in a Pakistani court.
