Delhi Police on Tuesday sought 10 days' police custody of alleged LeT terrorist Abdul Karim Tunda in a local court in New Delhi.

Earlier, Tunda was arrested near the India-Nepal border. The Delhi-born, one-handed extremist was on the list of top 20 terrorists wanted by India.
Metropolitan magistrate Jay Thareja ordered in-camera proceedings of the case on Tuesday after an advocate created a ruckus inside the court room.


Brought to the court under heavy security by the Delhi Police, Tunda was slapped by a Hindu Sena President Vishnu Gupta inside the court premises.

He is allegedly involved in around 40 bombings in the country. An aide of fugitive don Dawood Ibrahim and an operative of Lashkar-e-Taiba, he was also wanted for suspected involvement in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts.

Tunda was arrested Friday in Uttarakhand's Banbasa area close to the Nepal border when he was trying to enter India.
