Police custody of 11 terror suspects ends today

Bangalore, Sep 26, 2012, DHNS :

The police custody of the 11 terror suspects arrested by CCB on August 29, five from Hubli and six from the City - Shoaib Ahmed Mirza, Abdul Hakeem Jamadar, Muthi-ur-Rehman Siddiqui, Riyaz Ahmed Byahatti, Mohammad Yusuf Nalband, Aizaz Ahmed Mirza, Obedulla Imran Bahaddur, Mohammad Sadique Lashkar, Wahid Hussein, Mehboob Bagalkote and Dr Jafar Iqbal Sholapur, will end on Thursday.

The second Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court, on September 14, had extended the police custody of the 11 terror suspects till September 27.

Joint Commissioner (Crime-East) B Dayanand told Deccan Herald that the investigation is in progress and not yet conclusive. “We are confident of the case with the evidences we have,” he added. However, he declined to comment as to whether the police would seek the extension of police custody.

Maximum period


Irshad Desai of the Association for Protection of Civil Rights (APCR), holding counsel to all the accused in the case told Deccan Herald, “The police have already got the custody of the suspects for 30 days, the maximum under any law.

The police cannot seek for extension of custody unless under exceptional circumstances. We will oppose it tooth and nail, if they seek an extension.”

In view of the media-advocate clashes on the court premises on September 14, when the 11 terror suspects were produced before the court, he requested the media and the advocate fraternities to exercise restraint.

He added that he, on behalf of the accused, would interact with the media after the court proceedings to avoid any confusion.

The simmering tension between mediapersons and advocates had come to fore on September 14, when some people, claiming to be advocates, had objected to the presence of vehicles belonging to television channels.

They had allegedly abused and chased the mediapersons around, pelting them with stones.
