The Bombay High Court has ruled that the bail granted by the lower court to 27-year-old Areeb Majeed, who is accused of having links with the terror outfit ISIS. The court dismissed an appeal filed by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) challenging the special court’s grant of bail to him. Judges S.S. A bench comprising Shinde and Manish Pithale passed the order. Majeed was granted bail by a special NIA court in March last year. The court said that his trial was very sloppy and that the prosecution could not prove the basic evidence against him. He expressed dissatisfaction that the NIA court’s view that the police had failed to prove the basic evidence despite the Bombay High Court granting him bail was flawed.
The judges said Majeed had already been in police custody for six years and it had taken more than five years to interrogate 50 witnesses. Majeed came from an educated family. The bench said that there were no compelling reasons for him to commit malicious acts in the name of ISIS. The court granted him bail on a surety bond of Rs. Majeed was arrested by police in 2014. Police allege that he went to Syria and formed a link with ISIS, intending to take part in anti-India activities. Majeed, however, said it was true that he had gone to Syria, but had gone there to help the victims.
