Special Judge Dharmender Rana granted bail to Singh and another co-accused -- Irfan Shafi Mir -- asking them to furnish a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh and two sureties of the like amount each.

In the bail plea moved by advocate MS Khan, both of them had cited that the chargesheet had not been filed within the requisite 90 days period, as prescribed under the law, and sought statutory bail.

Singh, Mir and two other accused namely Javed Iqbal and Syed Naveed Mushtaq were arrested in connection with the case related to planning terror attacks in the national capital. The other two are currently under judicial custody in the matter.

Singh was suspended from the Jammu and Kashmir Police in January this year, after which a special cell had brought him to Delhi from Hira Nagar Jail in Jammu and Kashmir. He was arrested in a case related to planning to execute terror attacks in Delhi and other parts of the country.

According to police, the accused used to chat with other co-accused and terrorists of Hizbul Mujahideen through various internet platforms.

The FIR also mentioned the involvement of D-Company in funding pro-Khalistan terrorist organisations in Punjab.
