IM suspect in custody

A city court on Tuesday remanded a suspected Indian Mujahideen (IM) operative, arrested for alleged involvement in various blasts across the country, in judicial custody till January 10.

Abdur Rehman, 19, was produced before a duty magistrate who sent him to judicial custody for 14 days after Delhi Police said it did not require him any more for custodial interrogation.

Rehman, who was arrested in November this year from Chennai, was produced in the court after the expiry of his six-day police custody.

Apart from Rehman, other six suspected IM members, Mohammed Qatil Siddiqui, Gohar Aziz Khumani, Mohammed Adil, Mohammed Irshad, Gayur Ahmed Jamali and Aftab Alam will remain in police custody till January 5.

The court had earlier sent the six accused in the police custody after the Delhi Police sought extension of their custody for further interrogation to gather evidence of their involvement in the September 2010 blast near Jama Masjid here.

The court had kept pending the pleas of the Bangalore and Pune Anti-Terrorist Squad for custody of Siddqui, Jamali and Alam.

All seven accused are suspected of being involved in various terror cases, including Pune German Bakery blast, Bangalore's Chinnaswamy Stadium blast, the Jama Masjid shooting and September 7 blast at the Delhi High Court.

They were arrested recently by Delhi Police from various places in Delhi, Bihar, Chennai and elsewhere in the country. The police are intensifying their efforts to nab 28-year-old Yasin Bhatkal alias Imran, the alleged kingpin of the module.
