“Investigating officer is directed to inform the concerned police station about the cases, in which, the accused has made disclosure statements and thereafter it would be the job of the investigating officer of the concerned police station to seek custody of the accused, if required,” the court said while denying police plea for custody.

The accused told the court that he feared for his life in jail, upon which the judge told him to inform the jail superintendent.

Meanwhile, one man tried to assault Kumar as he was being taken to the lock up from the court room, but police stopped him midway.

Kumar, who hails from Kasganj in Uttar Pradesh but lives in Delhi, has admitted to raping and murdering more than 30 children in and around the city. He said he used to lure children with candies.

Police has sought four days custody on the grounds that on Wednesday the accused has made disclosure statement about 16 more similar crimes, in respect of the area adjoining police station Begamapura. Police added the accused had disclosed his involvement in another similar crime in Bahadurgarh which had to be identified.

He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym. He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him. When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.
