Mohd Omar Madni, a suspected terrorist, has disclosed about the links between Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashker-e-Taiba and Maoists in Jharkhand, investigators told a court in New Delhi on Friday.
"He (Madni) revealed that LeT was acting in coordination with CPI (Maoists) in Jharkhand. He has acted as conduit for LeT and provided training to recruits in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir and sent them to India to carry out terror strikes," the public prosecutor told the court which extended the police remand of Madni for seven days.
Delhi Police, which is interrogating Madni, contended that his custodial quizzing was necessary to ascertain his emails details and bank account which revealed transactions to the tune of Rs 25 lakh.
Metropolitan Magistrate Manish Yaduvanshi allowed the plea of the police, which has arrested the militant under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
50-year-old Madni, a resident of Bihar who acquired Nepalese citizenship, was arrested on June four from near Qutub Minar area in south Delhi and produced before the court after the completion of 14 days police custody.
