Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist arrested in the November 26 terror attacks in the city, was on Monday remanded in police custody till February 2 in the CST firing case.

Kasab has been in police custody since his arrest on the night of November 26 and has been booked in 12 cases by the city police.

He was last remanded in police custody on January 4 for his involvement with accomplice Ismail Khan in the shootout at the Cama and the Albless Hospital in south Mumbai.

Due to security concerns, Kasab was not produced in court today and Additional Metropolitan Magistrate N Shrimangale and Additional Public Prosecutor EB Dhamal were escorted to an undisclosed location, where the terrorist is being kept, for the hearing.

"It was argued that the police had to carry out further investigations in the case for which custody was needed," Dhamal said.

When asked by the court, Kasab said he had no complaints against the police, he said.

Kasab and his accomplice, Ismail Khan, had attacked the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus on the night of November 26 killing 58 persons and injuring over 100 in the indiscriminate firing.
