Court grants bail to Hizbul suspect

New Delhi, May 17 : A special National Investigation Agency (NIA) court on Friday granted bail to Liaqat Shah who was arrested by Delhi Police as a Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist from Uttar Pradesh in March on charges of being in a plan to attack the national capital.

Reports said Shah was granted bail on a personal bond of Rs 20,000 and a surety of an equal amount. Several conditions were also imposed on him and he cannot leave the country, reports said.

Suspected as a Pakistan trained terrorist, Shah was arrested from Uttar Pradesh town of Gorakhpur on March 20. Delhi Police said he was part of a group sent by Pakistan to launch terror attacks in India's national capital New Delhi around Holi to avenge the hanging of Afzal Guru. Police had claimed that they foiled the plan.

Liaqat Shah is a Hizbul Mujahideen member on the job of finding targets in Delhi for fidayeen attack, said Delhi Police Special Commissioner SN Srivastava at a press conference in March.

Srivastava said Liaqat was staying in Pakistan where he went in 1997 and since then had been there getting training but crossed over to India occasionally.

Liaqat was arrested when he came over to Gorakhpur. Police said contrary to some reports he had not surrendered but arrested.
