Delhi police said this is in a supplementary charge sheet in the Jama Masjid blast case in which 11 alleged members of militant outfit Indian Mujahideen were charge sheeted earlier. The investigators said during the probe it became evident that 30-year-old Jundal was also involved in the Jama Masjid blast case.
