11 ISIS operatives move Delhi High Court for bail

The accused were arrested by NIA in January 2016.

New Delhi: As many as eleven suspected ISIS operatives, arrested from across the country for allegedly financing and recruiting people to join the terror group, on Monday moved the Delhi High Court seeking bail on the ground that the trial court while dismissing their bail plea had not extended their remand.

In their bail application, which is likely to come up for hearing before the court this week, they have alleged that the trial court had on May 23 dismissed their bail pleas despite the fact that neither a charge sheet was filed against them nor the period of their detention was extended.

“The appellants became entitled to be released on statutory bail under section 167(2) CrPC and they availed of the remedy by moving application on May 23 which was dismissed by the trial court...,” the bail plea, filed through advocate M.S. Khan, said. The accused were arrested by NIA in January 2016.
