NIA likely to quiz terror suspects

 The First Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court on Thursday remanded 11 of the 14 arrested for terror links, in judicial custody till October 11.

The 30-day maximum period of police custody of the arrested ended on Thursday. Shoaib Ahmed Mirza, Abdulla Hakim, Ejaz Mahammed Mirza, Mahammed Yusaf Nababand, Riyaz Ahmed Byahatti, Muthi-Ur-Rehman Siddiqui, Obedulla Imran Bahadur, Mahammed Sadiq Lashkar, Wahid Hussain, Mahaboob Bagalkot and Dr Jaffar Iqbal Sholapur, were remanded in judicial custody.

The court, however, extended the police custody of Mohamed Akram and Obedulla-Ur-Rehman, the other two accused in the case, till September 29.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is likely to take over the probe in the Bangalore terror module case. A special team of the NIA has already interrogated the 14 youths arrested by the Central Crime Branch for their suspected terror links. But, B Dayananda, Joint Commissioner (Crime-East), told Deccan Herald that the NIA had not formally sought to take over the probe.
