Bhubaneswar: Suspected Al Qaeda operative Abdur Rehman’s deposition before Salipur Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) court could not take place on Monday in the absence of the judge. He was sent back to Tihar Central Jail in New Delhi.
He will be produced in the court again on June 12.
Rehman was produced in the JMFC court earlier on May 15. Following a petition filed by his counsel, the court had then directed the special task force of the state Crime Branch to lodge him at Chowdwar jail. The court later issued an order to send him back to Tihar jail as his deposition before Patiala court was due on May 23.
The suspected terror operative from Cuttack’s Paschimakachha village was arrested during a joint operation by the special cell of Delhi and Odisha police on December 16, 2015, for allegedly running an illegal Madrasa at Tangi near Cuttack and brainwashing the youth to join the terrorist organization.
