MUMBAI: The banned Lashkar-e-Taiba helped finance the procurement of work permits by Mumbai terror attacks suspect Abu Jundal and the 'recruited' Indian youths in Saudi Arabia, according to investigators, the Press Trust of India reported on Saturday.

"Jundal's main job was to recruit Indians in Saudi Arabia and he got work permits for them as soon as they were indoctrinated," said a police officer privy to the ongoing interrogation of Jundal by Mumbai crime branch said.

The work-permits helped the youths to avoid coming under the scanner of Saudi authorities, the officer said.

LeT had, in fact, funded Jundal's entire one-year stay in Saudi Arabia, they said, adding he had traveled there on a tourist visa.

"Jundal told us that he was paid in Saudi itself, and he never did any job for earning his livelihood," the officer said.

Jundal was arrested in the Mumbai terror attacks case on July 21 this year, after he was brought here from Delhi.

Apart from Mumbai attacks, Jundal is also wanted in other cases in Maharashtra: Aurangabad Arms haul case, 2010 German Bakery blast in Pune and the conspiracy to attack Nashik Police Academy.

Indians are targeting a sect of Islam which is Salfi and is pro Pakistan sect. unlike Dubandi which rejected creation of Pakistan.i think that is the real reason behind.LeT is banned and no longer active as it use to be.its top leadership is watched by CIA,ISI,MI6 everyday.
