NIA gets 10-day custody of man arrested for supplying weapons to ISIS-inspired terror group

NEW DELHI: A Delhi court on Friday granted the National Investigation Agency 10-day custody of Mohd Naeem, arrested for allegedly providing weapons to members of a suspected ISIS-inspired terrorist group busted after a multi-city swoop last week.

The 21-year-old was arrested from Meerut in western Uttar Pradesh on Thursday night and produced before a district judge on Friday, who sent the probe agency to another court.

Special Judge Rakesh Syal then sent Naeem to 10-day NIA custody allowing the agency’s plea for the same.

Naeem, the probe agency says, supplied weapons to the members of a suspected Islamic State-inspired terror group, arrested on December 26.

The NIA arrested 10 men, including a ‘mufti’ from Amroha, also in western Uttar Pradesh, who it said were planning suicide attacks and serial blasts targeting politicians and Government installations in Delhi and other parts of north India. (AGENCIES)
