Denying police seven more days to grill alleged Babbar Khalsa International (BKI) militant Arvinder Singh, a local court on Monday remanded him in judicial custody.

Since his arrest on May 24, Arvinder Singh was in police custody. Cops wanted to get more information out of him about his network but defence lawyer HK Bhambhi argued that in two weeks, police had failed to show any recovery from him. The next hearing is on June 20.

Senior superintendent of police (SSP) Snehdeep Sharma declined to share the leads gathered from Arvinder Singh with the media. Arvinder’s aide, Surjeet Singh , who was arrested on May 30, would be produced in the court on Tuesday. Director general of police (DGP) Suresh Kumar Arora had interrogated both last week during his visit to the district.

A case under Sections 10 (penalty for being member of an unlawful association) and 13 (punishment for unlawful activities) of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, and Section 121 (waging war against the country) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) has been registered against Arvinder Singh at Rahon.
