Court extends police custody of 2 AQIS operatives by two days

NEW DELHI: Two suspected operatives of Al Qaida in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS), arrested for allegedly radicalising youth for terror activities, were today remanded to police custody for two days by a Delhi court.

The two accused, Maulana Mohammad Abdul Rahman and Mohamad Asif, were produced before Additional Sessions Judge Reetesh Singh on expiry of their police remand and the Special Cell of Delhi Police sought extension of their custody saying they were needed for further interrogation.

The police told the court that the accused were needed to be quizzed further for unearthing the entire conspiracy of AQIS and to ascertain the identity of their associates.

The court extended police remand of Rahman and Asif by two more days.

It also sent arrested co-accused Zafar Masood to two weeks judicial custody after the police said he was not needed for further interrogation. Masood was produced before court after expiry of his police remand. (AGENCIES)
