The intercepts of the chilling conversations that the 26/11 "handler" 'Abu Jindal' had with the terrorists were widely heard around the world and documented in various excellent documentaries and there is a renewed interest in these intercepts now with the arrest of Zabiuddin Ansari aka Abu Jindal aka Abu Jundal aka Abu Hamza, a co-conspirator of the 26/11 terrorist strikes in Mumbai, who is alleged to be the handler whose voice has been identified with one of those voices on the intercepts. A quick recap from our blogs:

Excerpts from the transcript of conversation between "Abu Jindal" and one of the terrorists at Chabad House:
Handler: Remember that every one person you kill there is like taking 50 lives.... Handler: Listen
TerrorisTerrorist: Yes, yes
Handler: Get rid of these people. Kill them
Terrorist: By Allah's wish it is all quiet. There is no movement
Handler: No, no wait. Shoot. If firing starts, you won't know the timing, direction and intensity
Terrorist: I've run out of grenades
Handler: Do it
Terrorist: What? Shoot them?
Handler: Yes. Make them sit up and shoot them in the backs of their heads
... [After some time]
Handler: Have you done the job or not?
Terrorist: No, I will do it in front of you. I was waiting for you
Handler: Do it in the name of Allah. (Woman screams: Please don't kill me!)
Handler: You killed one?
Terrorist: Both together
Terrorist: Allah willing, today is Friday. Today will be the final fight
Handler: Use all of your might. Do it. Shoot them. Get them
Terrorist: Intense fire has started. Firing has started in our room
Handler: Take cover
(A little later)
Handler: Yes, what happened?
Terrorist: I've been hit
Terrorist: On my side and leg
Handler: May Allah protect you
Terrorist: Pray for me, so that I attain martyrdom
