India had been tracking 2008 Mumbai terror attack suspect Abu Jindal Hamza for over a year, Home Minister P Chidambaram said today.
He added that Hamza's confession proved the involvement of state players in the strike.
"We were tracking Jindal for over a year. His confession proves that there was support of state actors for 26/11 massacre," Chidambaram told reporters here.
Hamza, 30, was arrested at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here June 21 after his deportation from Saudi Arabia. He is said to have a number of aliases.
