Suspected Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) operatives Abdul Subhan and his nephew Asahbuddin, arrested for their alleged roles in conspiring to carry out terror strikes in Delhi and adjoining areas, were Thursday remanded to five-day police custody by a court here.
Subhan and Asahbuddin were produced before the court from judicial custody in pursuance to the production warrants issued against them on Wednesay.

The police told the court that they were required to be confronted with Arshad, who was on Thursday remanded to police custody till August 21, to know about the penetration of LeT in Delhi and other parts of the country.
“To unearth the whole conspiracy for executing a terrorist strike in Delhi and neighbouring areas by these accused persons and to know the penetration of LeT in Delhi and other parts of India, all the three accused are to be confronted with each other,” the police said while seeking eight days police custody of both the accused.
Advocate Akram Khan, who appeared for both Subhan and Asahbuddin, opposed the plea saying they have already been interrogated at length earlier by the police.
Additional Sessions Judge Reetesh Singh granted police custody of the two accused till August 19.
Pakistani national Arshad Khan, who was lodged in Kolkata jail in connection with the shoe baron Partha Roy Burman kidnapping case of 2001, was on Wednesday produced before the court.
