A special court today allowed Anti-terrorism Squad (ATS) of Maharashtra police to subject suspected Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) operative Mohammed Aslam alias Saleem to scientific tests to find out his role in the 2006 Aurangabad arms haul case.

The sanction was accorded by designated judge Y D Shinde who also extended his ATS custody till October 9.

Special public prosecutor Raja Thakre moved an application seeking permission to hold scientific tests on
the accused.

Asked if the accused had any complaints from police,he replied in the negative.

Saleem, arrested from New Delhi Railway Station on August 25, was handed over to ATS and produced before a
Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court here on September 15. He has been in ATS custody since then.

The Delhi police had recovered explosives and devices while Saleem was boarding a train to Maharashtra.
