Four SIMI activists, brought in from Madhya Pradesh by Gujarat police for interrogation in connection with Ahmedabad serial blasts cases, were on Sunday sent to police custody till September 3.

The activists of banned organisation including Kamruddin Nagori, Aamil Pervez, Asif Hussain and Abudul Sibli, brought here on a production warrant, were sent to police remand by metropolitan Magistrate JK Pandya.

The city crime branch had requested for 14-day police custody of four, who according to police attended the SIMI training camp in Halol and might be involved in the July 26 serial blasts.

However, SIMI chief Safdar Nagori is yet to be brought to the city by the crime branch team. Nagori was arrested from Madhya Pradesh in March 2008.

They were booked under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act by the Madhya Pradesh police for organising SIMI training camps in different parts of the country.

The City Crime Branch in its application seeking remand of 14 days had said that it was found during the investigations that the explosives used in July 26 blasts were brought from Madhya Pradesh and these four suspects may be involved in transporting it to Gujarat prior to their arrests.
