SEVEN MEN arrested by the Maharashtra Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) last week were sent to extended police custody till January 22 by a sessions court. Apart from charges of Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act applied on them earlier, the ATS has also added sections pertaining to forgery, claiming that the men had prepared false identity cards.

The men arrested on January 12 and 13 from various places including Kalyan, Vikhroli and Ghatkopar, were produced before a sessions court on Tuesday with the prosecution claiming they were probing their alleged links with the Maoists. The prosecution claimed that they wanted to examine social media activity of the men, some of whom are working as labourers and members of trade unions in the city, to find their alleged links.  The defence advocates said that despite having their custody for four days, the prosecution had not been able to show any suspicious activity by the men.
