Serial blasts rock Delhi, again

Three suspected terrorists allegedly involved in the Delhi [Images] serial blasts were on Sunday remanded in 14 days police custody by a Delhi court.

Zia-ur-Rehman, Shakir Nishar and Shakeel, who were on the run since the September 13 blasts that rocked the capital, were arrested by the Delhi police on Sunday morning.

The three were produced before Metropolitan Magistrate Ruby Alka Gupta, who remanded them to police custody till October 5.

During the proceedings, the police told the court that their custodial interrogation was necessary as the investigators were expected to seize some vital evidence relating to their role in different serial blasts that rocked various parts of the country.

The police also informed the court that the accused were also to be taken to different cities of Uttar Pradesh [Images] to ascertain their role in November serial blasts outside courts in the state.

In a separate hearing, Abdul Rehman, the arrested caretaker of the infamous L-18 Batla House in Delhi's Jamia Nagar where the encounter took place on Friday, was sent to 14 days judicial custody by the court.

The police have slapped charges of cheating and forgery against Rehman for allegedly providing an affidavit with a fake signature of the landlord to Atif alias Bashar, the alleged main man of the Indian Mujahideen [Images] who carried out the September 13 serial blasts and was killed in the encounter with police on Friday.

All the three accused Zia-ur-Rehman, Shakir Nishar and Shakeel are residents of Azamgarh district in Uttar Pradesh.

The court also asked the police to medically examine the three accused every 48 hours.
