A Delhi court on Thursday remanded a suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorist to seven days' police custody in a fresh case relating to the serial explosions here on September 13, 2008.

Police sources said accused Shahzad, who has evaded arrest for over 15 months, would be taken to Maharashtra to probe his alleged connections with IM modules alleged to be involved in the Pune blast of February 13, which claimed 11 lives.

The Delhi Police special cell sleuths produced the accused before the court after completion of his 12-day police remand.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaveri Baweja allowed the Special Cell to keep Shahzad, arrested from UP on February 1, in their custody till February 25.

Public Prosecutor Rajiv Mohan sought 10 days' remand of the accused on the grounds that he had to be interrogated in connection with the recovery of a laptop and two mobile phones from Azamgarh in Uttar Pradesh at his instance.

He is also to be interrogated about the whereabouts of 14 absconding IM members for their alleged role in the serial blasts in the national capital, Mohan said.
