Liyaqat Ali Shah, a suspected Kashmiri militant, who was arrested by the Delhi Police for allegedly conspiring to carry out terror attacks in Delhi, has been granted a bail on Friday by a special NIA (National Investigation Agency) court in New Delhi.
It was under the judgment of District Judge I.S.Mehta who enlarged Liyaqat on bail on a personal bond of Rs 20,000.
Under the several conditions imposed on by the court, Liyaqat is directed not to leave the country without the prior permission of court.
Liyaqat was arrested on March 20 while crossing the Indo-Nepal border in Gorakhpur with his family.
Liyaqat had said that he had come to surrender under the Jammu and Kashmir government’s rehabilitation policy.
Pertinently, many other Pak returned militants (under the Rehabilitation policy of government) protested over the Government’s negligence towards them.
The Home Ministry had on March 28 issued a notification facilitating NIA to take over the case after his arrest had generated conflicting versions from Delhi and J&K Police.
