Imran Shehzad, an alleged LeT operative who is suspected to be involved in the November 26 terror strike on Mumbai, is being brought in Mumbai from Uttar Pradesh, a senior police official said in Mumbai on Wednesday.
"We sought his custody to interrogate his alleged involvement in connection with the Mumbai terror strike," Rakesh Maria, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime), said.
The crime branch, probing the Mumbai terror attack, moved an application in a court in Uttar Pradesh last week seeking the custody of Imran who was arrested for his alleged involvement in the attack on a CRPF camp at Rampur on December 31, 2007.
While Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin had allegedly conducted a recce of Mumbai and passed on information about prospective targets in the city to LeT operatives, Imran was suspected to have aided them.
Faheem and Sabauddin, who are already in police custody in connection with the firing at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus in Mumbai on November 26, were brought to Mumbai on December 18. The trio has reportedly taken arms training in LeT camps in Pakistan.
Faheem and Sabauddin have been remanded to judicial custody till January 12 in connection with another case of encounter between terrorists and police on the night of November 26 registered at the DB Marg police station.
