The 70-year-old bomb-maker was reportedly assaulted by a member of a fringe outfit called the Hindu Sena. At least four people have detained by the Delhi Police for the attack on the LeT man.
Following the attack, the judge ordered that proceedings in the case will be held in-camera. The judge also asked the police to ensure Tunda's security when he is brought to court next. The terrorist was arrested on Friday last.
The Delhi court extended Tunda's custody by four days after the initial three-day custody ended today. The court also allowed Tunda to be taken to West Bengal after the police wanted the court's permission to take him to three states, apart from Delhi, where he allegedly carried out 40 bomb blasts in the 1990s.
The cops claim the Lashkar man has already made startling revelations about his alleged association with Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence or ISI and other men on India's wanted list like underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed and Lashkar boss Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi.
He has reportedly given the cops details about the people involved and places from where he sources and assembled explosives for these terror attacks.
In 1985, Tunda's left hand was blown off while he was making a pipe bomb in Tonk and he got the name Tunda - meaning a one-handed man.
