KOLKATA: A city court on Tuesday awarded ten days' NIA custody to Burdwan blast conspirator and Jamaat-ul- Mujahideen Bangladesh activist Rezaul Karim who was arrested from Jharkhand on Saturday and brought to Kolkata on a transit remand.

Among the three others produced before the court on Tuesday, chief metropolitan magistrate Md Mumtaz Khan awarded five days' NIA custody to Shahnoor Alam and Safiqul Islam and five days' judicial custody to Rafiqul Islam.

In his submission before the court, NIA counsel Shyamal Ghosh said that Karim was an active member of JMB and was engaged in manufacture and transport of bombs to various locations. Karim is also close to the top JMB activists in Bangladesh and his interrogation is necessary to unearth the conspiracy.

Ghosh added that as Shahnoor and Safiqul were closely connected to the JMB hierarchy, the NIA needed to interrogate them together.

Appreciating the submission, the judge allowed five days' custody to the duo arrested from Assam and brought them to Kolkata few days ago. Karim will have to be produced before the court on January 21 while the other three will have to be produced before the court on January 17.

In another development, the NIA made a fresh application to recall the arrest warrant of Habibur Rahman Seikh who was also wanted in Burdwan blast case.

NIA even awarded cash reward of Rs 5 lakh for Rahman, a resident of Muluk Shatipalli village at Bolpur in Birbhum.

The NIA counsel said that the investigation agency didn't find anything serious regarding Rahman and they wanted to recall the warrant which was granted by the court.

In another application, the court directed the NIA to open an account and keep Rs 1 lakh that was recovered from Sajid when he was arrested by Bidhannagar Commissionerate from near the airport a few days ago.

NIA counsel told the court that questioning Rezaul Karim was necessary to unearth the Burdwan blast conspiracy completely
