New Delhi: Two Pakistani nationals, including a 38-year-old woman, arrested by the city police on the charge of entering India illegally with an intention to settle here as ISI modules, were remanded in 14 days' judicial custody by a Delhi court.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav remanded 40-year-old Imran and his woman accomplice Soofia Kanwal, both from Karachi, in judicial custody in an in-camera proceeding.

The Crime Branch of city police arrested the duo from New Delhi railway station on a tip off that two Pakistani nationals, who had entered India on December 5 through Sanouli border in Gorakhpur of Uttar Pradesh, would be coming to the national capital by Gorakhdham Express.

The police had earlier said Imran had confessed to it that he was an Ahmedabad native but had migrated to Pakistan in 1988 and settled there.

He had set up his own textile business in Pakistan in 2007-08, the police had said, adding, he, however, incurred huge losses and landed in deep financial crisis when Pakistani intelligence agencies approached him with the offer of monetary support if he worked for them.

Police said Imran confessed to it that the Pakistani intelligence agencies had in March 2011 asked him to go to India along with one of their woman modules and help her settle there as their resident agent.

Police said Imran and Soofia were to proceed later to Agra from Delhi where they were to meet their another associate and work out further course of action.

Police had also recovered from the duo their Pakistani passports, having no Indian visa besides Imran's national identity card and Soofia's citizenship card.
