The court subsequently remanded Areeb to judicial custody till December 31.
Areeb has been charged under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act as well as the Indian Penal Code and remanded to the NIA’s custody till December 8.
NIA questions members of Islamic Guidance Society, which might have paid for Areeb Majeed and friends’ travel to Iraq.
The NIA took terrorists Sajid and Hakim to Murshidabad to identify the site of their operation, said an official.
The villagers, mostly Muslim, say they saw no sign of such activities.
The train was at Kendukana railway station near Rangia at the time.
Sajid is the prime accused in the October 2 blast at Burdwan in West Bengal that left two people dead.
The seized documents also allegedly include jihadi literature pertaining to the Islamic State.
The NIA had recently achieved significant breakthroughs with the arrests of JMB’s Burdwan commander Sheikh Rehmatullah alias Sajid.
National Investigation Agency had last month nearly 40 improvised explosive devices linked to Burdwan blast suspects.
His actual identity has remained a missing link in the investigations into the October 2 blast.
The NIA had first filed charges against the 10 accused in the case on Nov 30 last year
The decision comes a day after the NIA announced cash rewards for information on 12 persons wanted in connection with the Burdwan blast case.
The NIA has almost completed its first phase of investigation in which it has seized several documents and identified the absconders.
The group allegedly belonged to Bangladesh-based Jamaat-e-Mujahideen Bangladesh, a banned terror outfit in the neighbouring country.
