New Delhi: Fasih Mahmood, a suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorist involved in blasts in Bangalore and Delhi in 2010, was remanded to 10 days police custody by a Delhi court, a lawyer said Tuesday.
Mahmood`s counsel Syed Irfan Alam told IANS that his custody was given to police to question him for 10 days by a duty magistrate Monday evening.
The 35-year-old engineer from Bihar, employed in Saudi Arabia, was arrested around 8 am Monday at Delhi airport when he arrived here after his deportation from Saudi Arabia.

Mahmood hails from Barh Saaila village in Darbhanga district of Bihar, about 200 km from Patna. His father, Firoz Ahmad, is in-charge of the Benipatti primary health centre in Madhubani district. His mother is a school teacher in Darbhanga, police said.
