Two alleged Lashkar-e-Tayiba operatives, Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin, brought to Mumbai from Uttar Pradesh [Images] in connection with aiding the terror attacks in the city, were on Thursday remanded to police custody till December 31 by a magistrate court.
Ansari and Sabauddin, arrested by the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force for their alleged involvement in the December 31, 2007, attack on a CRPF camp, were brought to Mumbai on Wednesday night.
The duo were produced before a magistrate's court on Thursday where the police sought their custody on the grounds that they are suspected to have aided arrested terrorist Mohammed Ajmal Amir Iman in carrying out the attacks.
Ajmal, the lone terrorist arrested of the ten who were involved in the November 26 terror strikes, is presently in police custody.
Ansari and Sabauddin are alleged to have carried out reconnaissance missions at locations in the city and could have passed on the information to LeT operatives from across the border.
