A city court on Wednesday extended the judicial remand of alleged terrorist Viqaruddin Ahmed by a further period of 14 days.
The alleged terror operator was nabbed
on July 14 by the city police, and had been remanded for 14 days.
The Metropolitan Sessions Judge conducted the hearing in the case via video-conference, since the police failed to produce Viqaruddin in person at the Court. He agreed to the plea by the police that remand for the alleged terror needed to be extended.
Viqaruddin was arrested after a tip-off Secunderabad on July 14. He was on the run after shooting dead a constable of the Andhra Pradesh Special Police (APSP), Ramesh on 13 May 2010.
Constable Ramesh was on picket duty at Shah Ali Banda when Viqaruddin, along with an accomplice, opened fire at him and his colleagues. Viqaruddin is also suspected to have shot dead another policeman in the Falaknuma area in 2009.
According to police sources, Viqaruddin was arrested after 2 terror suspects that the police had arrested earlier tipped them off during interrogation.
Viqaruddin carried a reward of Rs. 5 lakh on his head.
He is a former Students Islamic Movement Of India (SIMI) activist, and police have claimed that he is also linked to Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).
