Senior lawyer H.S. Phoolka on Thursday said that Manoj Kumar has been sent to two-day police remand by the Delhi Court.

"He (Manoj Kumar) kept going to the police whenever they called him. The police today asked for his remand, saying that he is not cooperating in the investigation procedure. So, I asked the court to show me a single notice that says we haven't cooperated," he told the media here.

"We further told the court that this is a very biased kind of investigation from the police. He was arrested without any prior notice. The police was asking for seven days of remand, but the court has given remand of only two days," he added.
