New Delhi, October 29 (KMS): A Delhi court on Friday granted bail to Dr Bilquis Shah, the wife of illegally detained Vice Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference Shabbir Shah, in a false case registered against her.
India’s Enforcement Directorate (ED) in its supplementary chargesheet filed last year named Dr Bilquis as a new accused in the case. Shabbir Shah is presently in judicial custody in the concocted case.
Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana on Friday granted bail to Dr Bilquis Shah after she physically appeared before the court. The court also directed to furnish a bail bond with two surety of Rs 50,000 each. The Court had issued summons against Dr Bilquis Shah while taking cognisance on a chargesheet in a money laundering case.
Advocates MS Khan, Qausar Khan and Ankit Karn appeared before the court for Bilquis and Shabbir Shah in the case. Advocate Naveen Kumar Matta, representing ED has opposed the bail plea.
Shabbir Shah is currently lodged in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail. The ED has so far failed to produce any evidence against him. KMS—18M
