HC blast: Suspect’s judicial custody extended

The judicial custody of suspected terrorist Amir Abbas Dev, arrested for his alleged role in the blast outside the Delhi High Court, was extended.



New Delhi: The judicial custody of suspected
terrorist Amir Abbas Dev, arrested for his alleged role in the
September 7 blast outside the Delhi High Court premises, was
extended on Monday by another two weeks by a Delhi court.

Dev was produced before Additional Sessions Judge Neena
Bansal Krishana after the expiry of his judicial custody
remand.

The court extended Dev`s judicial custody till January
30.

Another co-accused Wasim Akram Malik, now lodged in
judicial custody, would be produced before the court tomorrow.

Dev, a native of Jammu and Kashmir, was arrested by the
National Investigation Agency (NIA) on the charge of sending
terror e-mails to media groups after the September 7 blast,
which killed 17 people and injured over 90 others.

A magistrate had earlier recorded Dev`s statement under
Section 164 of the CrPC in an in-camera proceeding.
A statement recorded by a magistrate under section 164
of the CrPC bars the accused from resiling from it on his
depositions during the trial and make him liable for
prosecution for the offence of perjury if he does so.

The probe agency has said Wasim Akram Malik is a `key
link` in the conspiracy behind the blast outside gate number 5
of the High Court.
