A probe has been ordered as to how he got the blade.

Cases had been registered against 10 persons in connection with the `pipebomb planting case`. The bomb was detected and defused before Advani`s cavalcade crossed a bridge at Aalam Patti on October 28, 2011

Seven persons, including Zaheer Hussain, have been arrested in the case.

Yesterday, when Hussain was produced before the Magistrate Pannerselvam, he told the court that he was not a terrorist and suddenly slashed his left hand with a blade.
He was immediately rushed to a government hospital, police said, adding that his condition was not critical.

Later the magistrate advised him and extended his remand till April 23.
