Kolkata: A local court today remanded two persons to NIA custody for three days and five others to jail custody for 14 days in connection with the Burdwan blast case.
The two remanded to NIA custody were Hassem Mollah and Rezira Bibi, and five remanded to jail custody were Abdul Hakim, Khaled Mohammad, Alima Bibi, Zia-ul-Haq and Amjad.
The seven, serving jail custody, were produced before the chief judge of City sessions Court Mohd Mumtaz Khan during the day.
Prosecution counsel said that NIA custody for the two persons were required as some documents had been found at the blast site at Khagragarh and Simulia madrassa which needed to be verified.
NIA also prayed for custody of another three accused Shahanoor Alam, Sahiqul Islam and Rafiqul Islam who were arrested in Guwahati and lodged in the jail there, which was also granted by the court.
The court also allowed NIA’s plea to extend judicial custody from 90 days to 180 days for framing of chargesheet against the accused under Section 43(D) of UAPA Act.
