A Delhi court on Thursday sent 10 persons, arrested on the suspicion that they are part of a module of the Islamic State (IS), to police custody for 12 days, officials said.

Vacation Judge Ajay Pandey allowed their police custody till January 8.

The members of the IS module, "Harkat-ul-Harb-e-Islam", were presented in the court amid tight security. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) demanded their custody for 15 days. NIA had arrested them on Wednesday, including the group leader, as they were allegedly planning terror attacks targeting some political personalities and security establishments as well as crowded places in Delhi and the national capital region.

The Judge also allowed the family members of six of the accused to meet them in the court. However, one of the family members was denied the facility as he was not having his identity proof.

Earlier, NIA had carried out searches at 17 places -- six in East Delhi's Jafarabad area, six in Uttar Pradesh's Amroha, two each in Lucknow and Hapur and one place in Meerut.

Six others, who are suspected to be members of the group, have been detained and they are being questioned.

The agency had registered a case on December 20 under several sections of the Indian Penal Code, the Explosive Substances Act and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

A country-made rocket launcher, 12 pistols, 112 alarm clocks, 100 mobile phones, 135 SIM cards, many laptops
and various electronic gadgets, besides 150 rounds of ammunition were also recovered during the searches.

The NIA also seized 25 kg of explosive material, such as potassium nitrate, ammonium nitrate, sulphur, sugar material paste, mobile phone circuits, batteries, 51 pipes, remote control car triggering switch, wireless digital doorbell for remote switch, steel containers, electric wires, knife, sword, IS-related literature and Rs 7.5 lakh in cash.

The agency arrested Mufti Mohammad Suhail, Saeed, 28, Raees Ahmed, Saqib Iftekar, 26 and Mohammad Irshad from Amroha.

Among the other accused 
are Anas Yunus, 24, a B. Tech student of Amity University in Noida, Rashid Zafar Raq, 23, Zubair Malik, 20 and his brother Zaid Malik, 22 and Mohammad Azam, 35, from Delhi's Jafarabad area.
