Suspected Hizbul Mujahideen (HM)operative Liaquat Shah, who was arrested by the Delhi Police on terror charges,was granted bail by a local court on Friday. District Judge I S Mehta granted bail to Shah on a personal bond and surety of Rs 20,000 each despite the NIA’s opposition on the grounds that he had been booked under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA), on charges of waging war against the country and relevant Sections of the IPC.

 However, Shah was asked to obtain prior permission before leaving the country.

Shah’s counsel Asim Ali told the court that his client was returning to India via the Sunauli border, with the intention to surrender before the authorities, when he was arrested. However, this was opposed by the NIA on the grounds that it had booked him under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA), on charges of waging war against the country and relevant Sections of the IPC. He was apprehended by the special branch of the Delhi Police, while crossing the India-Nepal border at Gorakhpur along with his family in March.
