Ahmedabad, Oct 28 (UNI) A local court today granted 14-day police remand to five accused in the Delhi serial blasts for their alleged involvement in the Gujarat Serial Bomb blast case of July-2008.

Metropolitan Magistrate G M Patel, after hearing the arguments of both sides, ordered 14-day police remand to all five accused, Mohammed Saif, Zeeshan Ahmad, Mohammed Shakeel, Zia-ur-Rehman and Saquib Nissar, for their alleged involvement in the Ahmedabad serial blasts in which over 60 people were killed and 200 injured on July 26, 2008.

The five accused were brought here by Gujarat Police after a local court of Delhi granted 3-day transit remand to bring them here.

Earlier, the accused were remanded in 12-day police custody by the Delhi Court.

Gujarat Police have so far arrested over 40 accused in connection with the Ahmedabad Serial Blasts case. Majority of the arrested accused are activists of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI). The blasts mastermind Mufti Abdul Bashar Kasmi, hailing from UP, was arrested by the Gujarat and UP police from Azamgadh.

Besides Mufti, SIMI's All India General Secretary Safdar Nagori, was arrested by the Gujarat Police and Special Task Force (STF) of the Madhya Pradesh.

Nagori had conducted terrorists training camps for these SIMI activists in the forests of Kerala and Gujarat earlier this year.
