Mohd Omar Madni, an alleged aide of Pakistan-based terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba founder Hafiz Saeed, was on Monday (June 29) ordered by a local court to be handed over to Kolkata police in a case relating to seizure of fake currency. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sunil Choudhary allowed a plea by the Special Task Force (STF) of Kolkata police seeking his transit remand in the case of recovery of fake currency having face value of Rs 60,000.

The court also directed the Tihar jail authorities in Delhi to hand over the custody of Madni, who was under the judicial custody, for his production before the court of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM), Bankshal, in Kolkata. Armed with a production warrant against Madni from the Kolkata court, the West Bengal police submitted before the court here that the name of the accused was revealed following arrest of four persons from the state capital there.

Mohd Mohibur Rahman, Tofazzel Hossain, Ram Dhiraj Ram and Ajit Kumar, who were apprehended from Beadar Street in Kolkata on May seven allegedly with the fake currency had revealed name of Madni as their associate, they submitted. Taking the contention of the Kolkata police into account, the court allowed their plea for transit remand with a direction to produce him before the ACMM there on or before July one. 50-year-old Madni, a resident of Bihar who acquired Nepalese citizenship, was arrested here on June four. He is accused of acting as recruitment agent of the Pakistan-based terror group.
