Indian police to question another Mumbai suspect

MUMBAI, India (AP) -- Indian police say they will question a man they have had in custody since February, believing he may have ties to the Mumbai Attack.

Mumbai police officer Rakesh Maria says the man, identified only as Sabauddin, will be brought to Mumbai from a jail in northern India.

Maria says Sabauddin was arrested along with an Indian national, Faheem Ansari, in February in north India carrying hand-drawn sketches of hotels, the train terminal and other sites in Mumbai that were later attacked.

Maria gave no other information on Sabauddin, including his nationality, when he spoke Tuesday.
