The court said since the police remand was given by the CBI designated court, the matter of extending the same should also be heard by the same court.

Earlier, the CBI sought three-day police custody of the accused to bring them face-to-face with one another. 

The CBI also sought three-day police custody of Intelligent Communication System India Limited (ICSIL) Managing Director R.S. Kaushil and former MD G.K. Nanda, who were arrested on Saturday. 

The court said both the applications will be heard on Monday by the CBI designated court.

Rajendra Kumar, a 1989-batch Indian Administrative Service officer of Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram and Union Territory cadre, was accused of abusing his official position in awarding Delhi government contracts of Rs 9.5 crore to private firm Endeavour Systems Private Limited. 

Besides Kumar, Kaushik and Nanda, the other accused in the case are Kumar's aide Ashok Kumar, two Endeavour Systems Private Limited directors Sandeep Kumar and Dinesh Kumar Gupta, and former VAT Department Assistant Director Tarun Sharma.
