Court rejects police remand for IM man

New Delhi, Oct 30, 2012, PTI:

A court here on Tuesday rejected the plea of Delhi Police for extension of custody remand of one of the suspected Indian Mujahideen operative, allegedly involved in the August 1 Pune blast case.

Additional sessions judge Kaveri Baweja declined the plea of the Special Cell of Delhi Police to extend by five days the custody of Irfan Mustafa Langda, and instead remanded him into judicial custody till November 13. Maharashtra native Irfan, 30, was arrested by the Special Cell from Jaipur on October 10 for allegedly planning to carry out blasts across country during the festive season, as well as for his role in the Pune blasts.

He was remanded in police custody till Tuesday. Police sought extension of his remand, saying he has to be confronted with Maqbool, another IM member arrested on October 23 from Hyderabad, to unearth the conspiracy hatched by IM and LeT to execute blasts at various places across India, particulary Delhi.

Police said during his custody, explosives and incriminating material used in the Pune blast was recovered at his instance.
