JAMMU: The judicial remand of Pakistani terrorist Mohammed Naved and two others was today extended by another 14 days by a special National Investigation Agency (NIA) court here.       

Apart from Naved, the other two accused -- Showkat Ahmed Bhat and Khursheed Ahmed-- were remanded in judicial custody by NIA Special Judge Y P Kotwal. Both of them arrested for helping Naved.            

36-year-old Bhat was allegedly involved in transporting a group of four LeT terrorists Mohammad Naved Yakub, Zhargham alias Mohammed Bhai, Abu Okasa and Noman from Baba Reshi in Baramulla district to south Kashmir soon after they infiltrated into India from PoK.       

The group split into two. One group attacked BSF convoy in Udhampur on August 5, during which Naved was arrested and his associate Mohammed Noman alias Momin was killed.        

The judge has extended the judicial remand of all the three accused till October 13 as their earlier judicial custody was about to expire today.        

Naved, who was part of the squad that attacked the BSF convoy in the Samroli area of the Udhampur district was captured by two local residents.      

Naved's interrogation at Jammu and Srinagar had revealed that he joined LeT in 2011 and was trained in the same camp as Mumbai attack convict Ajmal Kasab.
