The NIA was today given a week-long custody of four accused allegedly responsible for gunning down of two BJP leaders in Gujarat’s Bharuch district.
All the four accused identified as Inayat Patel, Mohd Yunus Shaikh, Abdul Samad and Abid Dawood Patel were given custody by a court in Ahmedabad till December 29, a NIA spokesman said here.
Of them, Abid Patel, who is considered an aide of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, was arrested earlier this month at the Indo-Nepal border by central security agencies with the help of Nepal Police.
Two unidentified gunmen had shot dead former BJP Bharuch district president and senior RSS member Shirish Bangali and the Bharuch district general secretary of BJP’s youth wing Pragnesh Mistry on November 2.
