New Delhi: The judicial custody of former Delhi University professor SAR Geelani has been extended till March 16.

He was arrested about two weeks ago for organising an event at the Press Club of India to mark the anniversary of the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

Delhi police had earlier accused Geelani, who teaches at Delhi's Zakir Hussain College, of being involved in the 2001 Parliament attack.

Police suspected his involvement because of his relations with Afzal Guru.

In 2003, the high court acquitted him of all charges.
