On expiry of their remand, accused Farman, Sunder Singh, Pawan and Sunny Uppal were produced before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Pritam Singh, who remanded them back in judicial custody till April 21, after the CBI did not seek their custodial interrogation.
The case was transferred to the CBI from Delhi Police for further investigation after the victim's parents met Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, demanding speedy justice for Tania.
They had alleged police negligence in the case and also demanded action against the guilty personnel.
The accused were apprehended after relatives of Tania, a BA first year student in a private university, alleged that he had an altercation with some shopkeepers at Lajpat Nagar market here on January 29 after they made fun of his hair style.

The shopkeepers had allegedly thrashed him following the altercation. He was brought dead to AIIMS the next day.
The death of Tania, son of a Congress MLA, evoked angry reactions from people of the north-east living in the national capital who alleged that the police had failed to protect him.
The police had booked all the four accused under Section 302 (murder) of IPC after the postmortem report revealed that Tania died due to injuries to his head and face caused by a blunt object.
Initially, the police had on February 3 arrested three of the accused under the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (SC/ST) (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989.
On February 10, the police arrested Sunny and slapped murder charge on all the four accused.

Two minors, who also allegedly assaulted Tania, are facing an inquiry before the Juvenile Justice Board here.
