The court had earlier sent the accused to the police custody on the prosecution's plea that their custodial interrogation was required to crack their Delhi module.

Delhi Police had detained around 10 others suspected to be linked with a terror outfit for planning an attack in the city and allegedly recovered explosives from their possession after a series of overnight raids in the national capital and neighbouring states. However, they were later let off after questioning.

Special Cell teams had conducted raids in Delhi and UP in a joint operation of Delhi Police and a central intelligence agency.

All the three accused were suspected to be members of a sleeper unit of a terror outfit, police alleged.
