A Delhi court on Tuesday extended the judicial custody of four people arrested in connection with the death of 19-year-old Arunachal Pradesh student Nido Taniam, also spelt as Tania.

The accused, Farman, Sunder Singh, Pawan and Sunny Uppal were produced before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Pritam Singh, who sent them back to judicial custody for another 14 days, after the CBI did not seek their custodial interrogation.

The case was transferred to the CBI from Delhi Police for further investigation after the victim’s parents met Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi demanding speedy justice for Tania and alleging negligence in the handling of the case.

Meanwhile, Sunny Uppal filed his bail application in the court of Additional Sessions Judge Jitendera Mishra, who partially heard the arguments but later listed it for April 7, after the CBI put in a request.During the hearing of the bail plea, Judge Mishra also pulled up CBI for their “shoddy” probe, saying they should have made Delhi Police personnel accused in the case.
