Jaipur: Habib Hussain, who hid in a toilet on an Air India Haj charter flight from Saudi Arabia to return to the country, was Sunday night remanded to six-day police custody.

The stowaway was produced before a magistrate in the city, who remanded him in six-day police custody, SP (Jaipur- East) B G Joseph said.

He was arrested here last night and booked under Passport Act. Preliminary interrogation has not revealed any intention to cause any harm, a police source said in Jaipur.

Hussain will be produced before the court on January 2, 2010 after the remand, the SP said.
