Accused produced in court in a hurry

Two main accused--Thadiyantavida Nazir (32) and his brother-in-law Safiquq alias Shafaz Shamsuddi (28), both hailing from Kannur, Kerala-- were remanded to police custody. The two were arrested by the Bangladesh Rifles.

Tajuddin of Ernakulam, Abdul Khadir of Virajpet in Kodagu district and Sarfuddin of Kannur, who were arrested a week ago, were remanded to 14-day judicial custody.
Earlier in the day, the CCB's bid to produce the two main accused at the Magistrate's residence in order to avoid media glare didn't fructify as first Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Judge Venkatesh R Hulgi declined to give them a hearing.

The Judge had asked the sleuths to produce the accused in the open court later in the day. The sleuths wanted to obey the Magistrate's instruction by producing the accused after court hours but changed their mind as the police custody would have ended at 5.30 pm. Hence, they first produced the three accused around 5.15 pm and later produced the two main accused around 5.45 pm. The accused were brought separately from Cubbon Park police station.

In a bid to avoid media taking the photos of the accused, the police had kept the details a secret.
