Arrested Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) operatives Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, Zarar Shah and Abu al-Qama, the prime suspects in the Mumbai terror attack case, will be shown the CDs on the carnage provided by India to Pakistan and further interrogated.

The Federal Investigation Agency's (FIA) Special Investigating Cell (SIC) requested an extension of the police remand for Lakhvi, Shah and al Qama because it wanted to question them further following the receipt of India's response to Pakistan's 30 questions seeking further information on the Mumbai attacks.

Following SIC's plea, Anti-terror Court judge Sakhi Mohammad Kahut remanded Lakhvi and Shah to the custody of the FIA for two more days during a hearing held in the high-security Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi on Tuesday.

In the light of the new information provided by India, the SIC is to arrange for the three accused to watch some CDs provided by India and then interrogate them, SIC officials said. Lakhvi, Shah and al Qama are the main suspects in the case, the officials told the judge.

The judge also remanded LeT activist Hamad Amin Sadiq, described by Pakistani officials as the "main operator" behind the Mumbai attacks, to judicial custody for 14 days. He will be held at Adiala Jail.
