Delhi blast: Custody of accused extended by 3 days
New Delhi: Wasim Akram Malik, arrested for
his alleged role in the September 7 Delhi High Court blast,
was on Friday remanded by a city court to NIA custody for three
more days on the agency`s plea that he needs to be further
interrogated for nabbing a few more of his accomplices.
Special NIA Judge H S Sharma allowed the National
Investigating Agency (NIA) to quizz Malik, a Jammu and Kashmir
native studying Unani medicine in Bangladesh, for three more
days after the agency said they have to arrest some more
persons linked to the case.
Malik was produced before the court after the expiry of
his 14-days` NIA custody. The investigators had termed Malik
as a `key link` in the conspiracy behind the blast outside
Gate 5 of the high court on September 7, leaving 15 people
dead and over 70 injured.
Ravi Kazi, counsel appearing for Malik, said NIA sought
three-day custody for his client saying his further
interrogation is required and certain new developments are
taking place in the case.
Information about Malik was given by Azhar Ali, a Hizbul
Mujahideen module, who is in Kotbalwal Jail in Jammu since
2009, sources said.
NIA has also seized three mobile phones from Jammu and
Kishtwar residences of Malik recently.
