Akmal Hashmi, a suspected LeT operative arrested in Jammu and Kashmir last week, was brought in the city on Saturday in connection with the investigation relating to July 11 serial blasts, police said.
"Hashmi will be interrogated by an Anti-Terrorism Squad to ascertain whether he is involved in July 11 blasts," ATS Chief KP Raghuvanshi said.
He said a decision on whether Hashmi would be booked in the case or any other legal action initiated against him would be taken after his interrogation.
The LeT had despatched 17 operatives to Mumbai to execute the plan and 16 of them returned to the Valley after carrying out the blasts, Hashmi reportedly told his interrogators.
