A suspected militant of Bangladesh-based Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami (HuJI) arrested yesterday along with three kg RDX was remanded to 11 days' Delhi Police custody by a court in Delhi on Thursday.

"Seeing the recovery of a huge quantity of explosive substances from the accused, Abdul Rahman alias Mohammad Iqbal (31), I remand him to 11 days' police custody for a fair interrogation in the case," Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Sanjeev Jain said in his order.

Seeking his police custody for 14 days, the police told the court that they had allegedly recovered three kilograms of deadly RDX from his possession, eight days after the serial blasts rocked Jaipur claiming 65 lives.

The police said they needed to take him to Uttar Pradesh and other parts of the country for investigation. They said he might be Rahman to Bangladesh to find out about his accomplices, the police told the court.

Rahman had been trained in Pakistan for carrying out terrorist activities in India. A sustained custodial interrogation was required to unearth his criminal conspiracy with others, the police said.

"For fair and proper investigation, I remand Abdul Rahman to 11 days' police custody. He be produced in court on June two," the CMM said.
