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.
Special Cell of Delhi Police moved an application seeking eight days police custody of the duo on the ground that they have to be confronted with co-accused Arshad Khan who was arrested on Thursday after being produced before the court from Kolkata Jail.
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.
