Bangalore Police will also seek custody of Fasih
Bangalore: The Bangalore Police on Monday said they would seek custody of Fasih Mohammed, a suspected Indian Mujahideen operative and key accused in the Delhi and Bangalore blasts, who was arrested after deportation from Saudi Arabia.
"If Delhi Police have taken Fasih into custody, we will also be seeking his custody as he is involved in the Chinnaswamy Stadium blasts", Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) B Dayanand told a news agency.
Fasih, who was in detention for five months in Saudi Arabia, was taken into custody at Delhi airport on his arrival from the Gulf.
