Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sanjay Khanagwal granted bail to 28-year-old Mohd Rahamath Pasha on a personal bond of Rs 25,000 with one surety of the like amount. The Special Cell of Delhi Police had on October 5 arrested Pasha outside New Delhi Railway station. He was allegedly found possessing two country-made pistols along with nine live cartridges.

According to police sources, Pasha used to chat on Jihadi websites about ISIS but during the investigation, it was found that he was not linked with the dreaded outfit which has created havoc by carrying out terror strikes in several countries, including the recent Paris attack.

In its FIR lodged against Pasha, the police has alleged that he was suspected to be involved in 'anti-national and criminal activities'. During the arguments on the bail plea, advocate M S Khan, who appeared for Pasha, told the court that his client has clean antecedents and was not involved in any crime earlier.
