A Delhi court on Saturday sent Mohd Jubraeel Khan to three-day police custody who claimed to have worked as Anees Ibrahim's cook in Karachi.
Khan, who was in jail since April 13, has been sent to police custody till April 26 by Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kamini Lau, after police sought his remand for the search and identification of one Ibrahim and one Raju, who were allegedly the main agents behind Khan's Karachi trips.
The court also directed that Khan's bail application, which was scheduled to come up for arguments on April 25, would now be listed for April 27.
Meanwhile, counsel Asghar Khan and S Irfan Kalia, appearing for Khan, informed the court that the accused wished to retract the disclosure statement made by him in police custody earlier, alleging it had been obtained under coercion.
Khan also alleged that he was "tutored" by the police to say what he did before the Magistrate.
However, the court pointed out that the accused had voluntarily made the statement before it, and that the confession under section 164 had been recorded by the Judicial Magistrate and not by the police.
The counsel submitted that the application was confined to the disclosure statement made before the police only.
This application is listed for consideration on April 26.
Last week, Khan had told the ACMM that Dawood continued to live in Karachi, as did his brother and other wanted persons.
He also gave police details of Dawood's residential address there, adding that he had been thrown out of his job as cook after Anees discovered he was suffering from a "deadly" disease.
