    Court gives NIA custody of suspected Sri Lankan ISI agent

    September 18, 2014

    Chennai: A special court on Wednesday granted six days custody of suspected  ISI agent  and Sri Lankan national Arun Selvarajan to the National Investigation Agency (NIA). The judge, however, dismissed a petition by CBI to include it as a party in the investigation reported Times of India.

    The judge said CBI should approach the CBI special court to seek custody of Selvarajan, as this court is exclusively for NIA cases. Selvarajan was produced before the judge on Wednesday and NIA officials whisked him away as soon as judge Moni ordered six days custody. NIA officials said they would be focusing on the kind of information the accused is believed to have passed on to his Pakistani handlers in Sri Lanka, Shaji and Siddiqui.


    NIA had arrested Selvarajan from a hideout in Chennai on September 10. (KH)
