September 18, 2008 12:14 IST
Abu Basher, a key accused in the Ahmedabad blasts case, was on Wednesday brought to New Delhi [Images] by Gujarat Police to verify 'certain links and leads' as he had allegedly stayed in a house in the national capital with terror mastermind Abdus Subhan Qureshi alias Tauqeer, who is also wanted for the Delhi blasts.
"He (Basher) is in our remand and we have taken him to Delhi to verify certain links and leads," Director General of Gujarat Police P C Pande told PTI.
A SIMI [Images] activist, Basher, who was nabbed in Uttar Pradesh [Images] last month in connection with the Ahmedabad [Images] serial blasts, is allegedly also involved in the terror strike in Lumbini Park in Hyderabad last year.
