Court grants 9-day remand to ISI agent Wednesday, June 20, 2001
Ahmedabad, June 19: The metropolitan court has granted nine days remand to Mehboob Chotubegh Moghul alias Mehboob senior, alleged to be an ISI agent who surrendered before the high court on Monday.
He has several cases of smuggling, extortion, and dealing in arms and explosives pending against him. Six months earlier the city crime branch had arrested two ISI agents and seized 14 pistols and 114 cartridge. During interrogation one of the agents revealed the involvement of Mehboob in ISI activities.
Police investigations revealed that Mehboob senior was also involved in the shooting of a Chotta Rajan aide outside the Mirzapur high court three months back in the city. However, his wife had appealed before the high court fearing the police would “finish” Mehboob in an encounter and thus he did not come out of his hideout.
