2000 Red Fort attack case: Suspected LeT operative Bilal Ahmad Kawa gets bail
Delhi's Patiala House court on Wednesday granted bail to Bilal Ahmad Kawa, who is a suspect in the 2000 Red Fort attack case.
Bilal was apprehended by the Special Cell of Delhi Police and Gujarat Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS), in a joint operation at the Delhi airport on Jan 10, 2018.
On December 22, 2000, three Indian Army personnel were killed in indiscriminate firing at Red Fort. While at least 11 people - including mastermind Mohammad Arif from Pakistan's Abbottabad - have been convicted in the case, Kawa was absconding.
During investigation into the 2000 attack, Delhi Police had found that Rs 29.5 lakh was allegedly transferred to Kawa's bank account.
Investigation had also revealed that Arif had deposited the money - allegedly used in funding the Red Fort attack and was also sent to Kashmir for militancy - in his account.
