A suspected Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorist, who was arrested from the New Delhi railway station on Tuesday, was remanded in police custody for 14 days by a Delhi court on Wednesday.

"The police has prayed for custodial interrogation to obtain further inputs. He is to be taken to Aurangabad. His previous involvement in the cases in Maharashtra and Gujarat are yet to be ascertained, so he is being sent to police custody till September 9," the court said.

Twenty-seven-year-old Mohammad Aslam alias Saleem was produced before Metropolitan Magistrate Manish Yaduvanshi.

The prosecution submitted that Aslam was allegedly carrying explosives in sweet boxes to be delivered to his associates in Aurangabad.

A resident of Jammu and Kashmir, Aslam was found carrying two kg of RDX, a Pakistani passport, a handbag and a briefcase.
