Will File Charge Sheet In Due Course: NIA

New Delhi: Suspended Jammu and Kashmir DySP Davinder Singh, arrested while ferrying two Hizb-ul-Mujahideen militants in a vehicle on the Srinagar-Jammu Highway earlier this year, was granted bail by a Delhi court on Friday, his lawyer said.

Singh and another accused in the case Irfan Shafi Mir were granted the relief by the court in a case filed by special cell of Delhi Police, noting that the probe agency failed to file charge sheet within 90 days from his arrest, as prescribed
under law, their lawyer M S Khan said.

The bail was granted on a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh and two sureties of like amount.

Will File Charge Sheet In Due Course: NIA

Meanwhile the National Investigation Agency (NIA) said it had “adequate evidence” against tainted DySP Davinder Singh and a charge sheet would be filed against him in due course.

In a brief statement, a spokesperson of the NIA said Singh continued to be in judicial custody in the case filed by the agency.

“We have adequate evidence against him and he will be charge-sheeted in due course,” the NIA said in the statement.

Singh was on Friday granted bail in a separate case filed by the Delhi Police.

The NIA had taken over the terror case on January 18, a week after Singh was caught in south Kashmir while ferrying two militants out of the valley on January 11.

Besides Singh, the others arrested were two militants –commander of Hizbul Mujahideen Syed Naveed Mushtaq Ahmed alias Naveed Babu and Rafi Ahmed Rather — and Irfan Shafi Mir, who claims to be an advocate.

Later on January 23, Naveed’s brother, Syed Irfan Ahmed, was also arrested after he was brought from Pun jab. He was in constant touch with his brother and had asked him to look for an accommodation in Chandigarh where they could stay to escape the harsh winter months of Kashmir.
