Principal District and Sessions Judge Dharmesh Sharma remanded the accused in the Terror Funding Case, including human rights activist Khurram Parvez and Kataria, to Judicial Custody till May 13.

According to the National Investigation Agency, its investigation revealed that certain secret National Investigation Agency documents were shared by accused Indian Police Service Officer Arvind Digvijay Negi with Kataria through encrypted communication channels.
