Kobad Gandhi, a top leader of CPI (Maoist), who is in charge of spreading the organisation's influence in urban areas, was sent to 14 days judicial custody by a Delhi Court on Tuesday.

Gandhi, arrested in New Delhi on Monday, was remanded to judicial custody for a day by a duty magistrate. He was produced before Chief Judicial Magistrate Kaveri Baweja who extended his judicial remand till October 6.

The Maoist leader who was apprehended by the special cell of the Delhi police on Sunday night was produced before the CMM after a medical check-up as he had complained of a cardiac problem.

The court in its order said Gandhi, 63, should be provided necessary medical treatment during his custody.

Police said Gandhi was in-charge of a CPI(Maoist) committee on mass organisations, spreading its influence in urban areas and publication wing.

They said he was also in touch with ultra left organisations abroad to get international recognition for his party. His wife Anuradha, also a top Maoist leader, died of malaria in April this year.
