Mohammad Kasim Lajpuria alias Mechanic Chacha, an accused in the sensational serial bomb blasts case that rocked Bombay in 1993, was arrested in Nepal yesterday, almost six-and-a-half years after the incident.
Mechanic Chacha (54) was today produced before the Special TADA court presided over by Judge P D Kode and was remanded to custody till November 11.
Earlier, after being arrested by the Nepal police, Mechanic Chacha was handed over to a Central Bureau of Investigation team. The CBI team in turn handed him over to their special task force in Mumbai.
