New Delhi: A court here on Thursday sent serial killer and rapist Ravinder Kumar to Tihar Jail till August 5, declining the police plea for four days custody.

Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav remanded Kumar in 14 days judicial custody after he was presented before him, observing the accused was in police custody from last seven days and investigation in the particular case has been completed.

“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.
