The City Metropolition Court on Monday remanded SIMI chief Safdar Nagori in police custody till September 3 for further interrogation in connection with July 26 serial blasts in Ahmedabad.
Nagori, brought by the Gujarat police from Madhya Pradesh, was remanded in police custody by the Metropolition Magistrate, G M Patel, after the city Crime Branch sought his custody for 14 days, saying that he had planned the blasts in the SIMI training camps held in Kerala in December 2007.
Nagori was arrested in Madhya Pradesh in March 2008 and Gujarat police has brought him to the city on a transfer warrant.
Nagori and his men had also organised other training camps in the jungles near Halol in January 2008, Crime Branch officials said.
Crime Branch officials said Nagori was also present in the city in February this year and held some meetings to execute the serial blasts.
Nagori's advocate Hasim Qureshi argued against sending Nagori to police custody by saying he is not involved in the terrorist attack in the state.
