Indore: A special CBI court on Thursday remanded suspected mining mafia member Manoj Gurjar in judicial custody till April 11 in connection with the IPS officer Narendra Kumar Singh murder case.

Gurjar was today produced before the Special CBI Court of Dr Subhra Singh by the Madhya Pradesh Police. The court remanded him to judicial custody till April 11, CBI Public Prosecutor K H Khan said here.

Gurjar is accused of mowing down the 30-year-old officer, who was posted as the Sub-Divisional Officer of Police (SDOP), at Banmore in Morena district on March 8 when the latter tried to intercept a tractor-trolley, allegedly laden with illegally mined stones, driven by the accused.

Madhya Pradesh government handed over the investigations into the murder to CBI after the deceased wife, who is an IAS officer, sought a probe by the central agency into the incident.

The CBI counsel said Gurjar was sent to Indore Central Jail.
