Two suspected BKI terrorists get bail



New Delhi: Two suspected terrorists of banned outfit Babbar Khalsa International (BKI) were on Monday granted bail by a Delhi court.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav granted bail to Sarabpreet and Narendra Singh alias Raju, who were arrested for their alleged roles in two separate cases.

Sarabpreet was arrested by the Special Cell from North Delhi area allegedly for plotting to eliminate Dera Sacha Sauda chief Ram Rahim. His arrest was followed by that of co-accused Punjab resident Jaswinder Singh.

Police had said the duo had procured a cache of arms and ammunition to execute their plans to eliminate Ram Rahim. They were booked under the stringent provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA), the Arms Act and various sections of the Indian Penal Code.

Sarabpreet was granted bail on grounds of parity as his co-accused Jaswinder had got it on June 27. While granting bail to Sarabpreet, the court noted the Delhi government had refused to grant sanction for their prosecution under UAPA on ground of unsatisfactory evidence.

In a separate case, Raju was granted bail by the court as the probe in the matter has already been completed.

He was arrested on March 19 by the police from the IGI airport. The police had said he was going to meet BKI chief in Germany when he was arrested.
