New Delhi, Sep 22 (PTI) A Delhi court on Thursday sent 18 activists of the Popular Front of India (PFI), arrested from different parts of the country in a multi-agency operation led by the NIA, to four days' custodial interrogation for allegedly supporting terror activities.

Special Judge Shailendra Malik passed the order after the probe agency produced the accused before the court and sought their custody, saying they needed to be quizzed to unearth the larger conspiracy.

During the hearing, the NIA told the court that the investigation was at a preliminary stage and further remand might be needed later.
