Abdul Karim Tunda,the alleged Lashkar bomb expert,was on Wednesday remanded in seven days’ police custody by a Delhi court after the investigators said those who had allegedly helped him in illegal infiltration of Pakistani nationals are yet to be identified.

Tunda was produced before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Amit Bansal after expiry of four days police custody given in connection with various bomb blasts in 1997 and for allegedly helping Pakistani nationals to infiltrate into India.

The Delhi Police Special Cell sought seven days remand of Tunda saying he was to be taken to Pilkhua in Uttar Pradesh from where explosives were to be recovered and some co-accused were to be arrested.

Police said “due to communal tension” in Pilkhua,they could not go inside the town while he was in their custody. They said Tunda is to be confronted with arrested co-accused Allauddin and Mohd Zakariya and he is to be taken to West Bengal for apprehension of other co-accused. “The accused is remanded in police custody for seven days and be produced on September 18,”the court said.
