KOCHI: Bihar native Yasmin Ahmed, who was caught from the New Delhi airport last year while trying to leave for Afghanistan to allegedly join the Islamic State (IS), will be released on bail.
The NIA Court in Kochi issued her release order after bail was secured from the Kerala High Court. NIA officers said her release documents and bond execution paper had been sent to the Women’s Jail, Thrissur, and she will be released once the bail is executed. Yasmin is lodged in the jail with her son.
The NIA Court has ordered her to execute a bond of Rs 2 lakh with two solvent sureties from Kerala possessing original title deed. She has also been asked to surrender her passport and not to leave Ernakulam district.
She has been ordered to reveal details of her stay in Kochi to the investigation officer and not to interact with mediapersons directly or indirectly. She has been asked to appear before the investigation officer every Thursday between 10 am and noon.
Yasmin was caught on August 2. The NIA had later taken over the probe and submitted chargesheet against Yasmin and Abdul Rashid, a Kasargod native who is suspected to be in Afghanistan, two months ago.
