In the case involving bomb blast that took place in a car at Dugri village, near Jalandhar, on December 5, rural police on Saturday sought remand of the prime accused, Jagmohan Singh, for five more days from a local court, submitting that they have to recover detonators, used to trigger the explosive, from Sirsa as revealed by him.

The court, however, allowed just one-day remand of the accused. Police told the court that the accused made these revelations during his two-day remand, telling that he had hidden the detonators on Hansi Road in Sirsa and would also help in arresting two of his accomplices there.

The court asked the police as why they failed to produce Jagmohan’s fresh medical report as they had submitted on Friday that his medical examination was held at the civil hospital.

The defence counsel argued that the police deliberately discharged his client from the jail and produced in the court, violating the norms.

He also contended that police have violated the court orders by not presenting the medical report as demanded by the same court earlier. He said his client is serious and is not able to give statement, but cops are ignoring his condition.

The police produced Jagmohan on a wheelchair.

He would be produced before the duty magistrate on Sunday.

On December 31, the court had sent him to two-day police remand for the first time as the police said they needed his custody for a week.

Police said they wanted to interrogate Jagmohan to get to heart of the conspiracy.

A police official, who is part of the investigation team, said Jagmohan has not been cooperating with them and is making an excuse of health condition.
