Police investigations have revealed that the Lashkar-e-Taiba operative, who was arrested on Thursday, had planned to target dams, power grids and installations in Andhra Pradesh.

Shamim Ahmed was carrying maps of these facilities, according to Gulbarga Superintendent of Police Dr K Ramachandra Rao.

A local court has remanded Ahmed to police custody for ten days.

"Interrogations have revealed that Ahmed underwent a 13-month training at Muzaffarabad in PoK so as to learn using the AK-47 rifle, grenades and bombs' Rao said.

He had plans to train youths on 'jehadi' activities and later send them to Pakistan, according to police, who said ten e-mail addresses have also been recovered from him.

A Bangalore Police team has arrived for further investigation.
