Mumbai: A special court here on Saturday extended till April 25 the National Investigation Agency (NIA) custody of Dalit scholar and activist Anand Teltumbde, arrested in the Elgar Parishad-alleged Maoist links case.
Teltumbde was arrested by the NIA on April 14 after he surrendered before it following the Supreme Court’s directives.
