Metropolitan Sessions Judge K Rajkumar allowed the NIA’s petition seeking their custody and directed that the accused be produced before the court on July 12. Mohammed Ibrahim Yazdani alias Ibbu, Habeeb Mohammed alias Sir, Mohammed Ilyas Yazdani, Abdullah Bin Ahmed Al Amoodi and Muzaffar Hussain Rizwan were arrested by NIA following a series of searches conducted at 10 locations in Old City area on June 29, with the assistance from Hyderabad police. The agency had detained six others, including a techie, during the operation. 

On Thursday, the court had remanded them to judicial custody for 14 days though NIA sought their police custody for further examination. In its application, the investigating agency stated that the accused need to be taken to Maharashtra and Rajasthan and it also wanted to question them on the possibility of recovering more explosives. During the arguments for police custody, NIA said they also wanted to probe the source of funding for the activities of the accused and about their contacts, if any. However, defence sought dismissal of the NIA petition, saying it is not maintainable.
