Kendrapara: The Kendrapara Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate (SDJM) court on Wednesday allowed the Crime Branch to take notorious gangster Syed Usman Ali alias Tito on a five-day remand for interrogation.
The Special Task Force (STF) of Odisha Crime Branch had requested for 10-day remand of the gangster.
Tito was on Tuesday sent to a jail in Barimul of Kendrapara district after his bail was rejected by the SDJM court here.
The dreaded criminal, who had managed to give the police a slip for the past six years, was arrested by STF of the Crime Branch following an encounter at Chandikhole area in Jajpur district on June 30.
After his arrest, Tito was undergoing treatment at SCB Medical College and Hospital with severe bullet injuries. The Crime Branch produced him before the SDJM court on Tuesday where the gangster appealed for bail. However, the court turned down his bail petition.
Notably, the STF had nabbed five of his associates following separate raids hours after the arrest of the gangster. The five accused were produced before the SDJM court on July 1 and were sent to jail after termination of their bail petitions.
