NEW DELHI: A Delhi court on Tuesday allowed the CBI to quiz in custody for seven days its Deputy Superintendent of Police Devender Kumar, who has been arrested in connection with bribery allegations involving agency's Special Director Rakesh Asthana.

Special CBI Judge Santosh Snehi Mann remanded Kumar to the custody of CBI, which had sought ten days of custodial interrogation of the accused official alleging that it has recovered incriminating documents after raiding his office and residence.

Kumar's counsel, however, opposed the submission and moved a bail plea before the court.

CBI has also sought the court's nod to add some more sections in the present FIR against accused including Kumar.

Kumar was arrested yesterday.
