A Delhi court on Wednesday sent Imam to five-day custody under Delhi Police Crime Branch.

Imam was brought to Delhi on transit remand after his arrest from Bihar’s Jehanabad on Tuesday.

The JNU student, who was booked for sedition for his provocative speeches had stoked controversy with his “cut off Assam from India” remark.
