Hyderabad: A local court on Friday directed the
Cherlapally Jail authorities to send "terror operative"
Viqaruddin Ahmed alias Viqar and two of his associates for
medical examination.

The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate gave these directions
after Viqar`s counsel filed a petition before the court
alleging that police had tortured Viqar and his associates
Riyaz Khan and Sayeed during interrogation and hence sought
sending them for medical treatment.
The court directed towards filing a report on the
treatment provided to Viqar and others by July 19.

`Terror operative` and founder of militant outfit Tahreek
Galba-e-Islam (TGI) Viqaruddin Ahmed alias Viqar was finally
arrested along with five of his associates from a location
here on Wednesday.
Viqar remained elusive after attacking police personnel
(to avenge the police firing after the 2007 Mecca Masjid
blast) in which two policemen were killed and as many injured
in Hyderabad city since December 2008.

Presently, Viqar and his five associates are under
judicial remand.
