Abdul Wahid Sidibappa was arrested in 2016 in a case of alleged conspiracy to carry out terror acts in country
The Delhi High Court on Tuesday asked the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to respond to a plea by suspected key operative of Indian Mujahideen in a case of alleged conspiracy to carry out terror acts in the country — seeking bail on the grounds of “inordinate delay” in the trial. A Bench of Justices Siddharth Mridul and Anup Jairam Bhambhani posted the case for May 6. The plea said the accused had been lodged in Tihar Jail for nearly five years and there had been no progress in the case, registered eight years ago. The petition said trial had not commenced as charges were yet to be framed.
