Suspected operative of Al Qaida in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) Syed Anzar Shah, arrested for allegedly radicalising youths for terror activities in India, was today remanded in police custody till February 1 by a Delhi court.
Shah was produced before Additional Sessions Judge Reetesh Singh after expiry of his police custody and the Special Cell of Delhi Police sought extension of his remand saying he was required to be interrogated further to ascertain the identity of his other associates.
The police told the court that Shah was to be quizzed to unearth the entire conspiracy as well as funding of the terror outfit.
Advocate Akram Khan, who appeared for Shah, argued that the police should first inform the court as to what they have done during the earlier police remand of his client.
The court after hearing the arguments said that sufficient grounds were mentioned in the application of the police seeking extension of Shah’s remand.
Besides Shah, four other accused– Mohammed Asif, Abdul Sami, Zafar Masood and Mulana Mohd Abdul Rehman Kasmi– have been arrested in connection with the case.(agencies)
