PDP leader Waheed Para granted bail by NIA court

Srinagar: Peoples Democratic Party youth leader Waheed Para, who was detained by NIA over a month ago, has been released on bail on Saturday.

Waheed, according to reports, has been released on bail by the Special NIA court in Jammu.

As per the official, he was taken to Jammu and produced before a designated NIA court in a case related to his alleged “close links” with Irfan Shafi Mir, who was arrested along with Hizbul Mujahideen militant Naveed Babu and suspended Deputy Superintendent of Police Davinder Singh in January last year.

Para was summoned by NIA a day after he had filed his nomination for the DDC polls last month. He was eventually arrested.

On 20 December, he was sent to a 30-day judicial remand by a special judge of the NIA.

A team of Counter Intelligence Kashmir (CIK), a wing of J&K police, also carried out a raid at his home in south Kashmir.
