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.
