Gujarat police on Monday secured the custody of five accused of Delhi serial blasts from a court here claiming “clinching” evidence against them in the synchronised terror attacks in Ahmedabad.
Seeking transit remand of suspects Mohammed Saif, Zeeshan Ahmad, Mohammed Shakeel, Zia-ur-Rehman and Saquib Nissar, the police claimed that they allegedly disclosed their involvement during interrogation by the Delhi police.
Their names have also emerged following interrogation of 27 other accused, who have been arrested in July 26 serial blasts in Ahmedabad, they submitted.
Metropolitan Magistrate Vinay Singhal granted transit remand of the accused with a direction that they would be produced before a competent court on October 30.
“The court is of the opinion that the contention that their remand was being granted on stereotyped manner cannot be the ground for declining request for transit remand as sought by the Gujarat police in connection with an entirely different case,” the court said, adding that every case was to be looked as an individual case.
Gujarat police, armed with non-bailable warrants issued against them, claimed that the five suspects were amongst those who had planted bombs in Ahmedabad city, which claimed 56 lives and left many injured.
They arrested the accused in connection with a blast case registered with Maninagar police station in Ahmedabad.
The five suspects were produced before the court on the completion of their 12 day-long custodial interrogation in the blast case registered with Connaught Place police station here.
They were remanded to judicial custody in the three cases lodged at Karol Bagh, Greater Kailash part I and Connaught Place police stations here.
