A Delhi court on Wednesday remanded a suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorist, arrested on Wednesday with one kg of explosives and a detonator, in police custody for seven days.
Assadullah Rehman alias Dilkash (20), arrested from north-east Delhi, was produced before chief metropolitan magistrate Vinod Yadav, who sent him to police custody till April 4.
The court directed the police to maintain a record of officials, who interrogate Dilkash and also asked them to wear a clear name tag to let the accused identify them.
Dilkash, who hails from Darbhanga in Bihar, had allegedly escaped in November last year from an illegal arms factory of Indian Mujahideens at Nangloi in West Delhi before the police crackdown during which several suspected terrorists were nabbed.
According to the police, Dilkash had told them that he had hired a house at Chandu Nagar from where the sleuths allegedly recovered one kg of explosive powder, a detonator, a timer and a mobile phone.
