Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed, arrested for their suspected involvement in the November 26 terror attacks here, were today remanded in police custody till February 17 in connection with the murder of fishing boat MV Kuber's captain.
Ansari and Ahmed, two alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operatives, were today produced before a magistrate's court where the Mumbai Police Crime Branch sought their custody from Uttar Pradesh police in connection with the murder of captain Ajay Singh Solanki.
Ansari, formerly a resident of Mumbai, and Sabauddin were arrested by the Uttar Pradesh police for their alleged involvement in the attack on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp in Rampur on December 31, 2007.
The duo was brought to Mumbai from Lucknow in December 18 last year.
When produced, Ansari alleged that three 'foreigners' had interrogated him in police custody.
Ansari's lawyer Ejaz Naqvi contended that his custody not be handed over to the police since foreign investigation agencies should not be allowed to interrogate him.
However, Additional Public Prosecutor E B Dhamal argued that the Crime Branch needed additional custody to interrogate the duo regarding the incident.
