Srinagar (NVI): National Investigation Agency (NIA) court has granted bail to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader, Waheed-ur-Rehman Para, who was in custody for over a month.

The Central agency arrested Para in November, just ahead of the District Development Council (DDC) polls in J&K, in connection with its probe into suspended DySP Davinder Singh’s link with Hizbul.

Meanwhile, Davinder Singh was arrested on January 11, 2020, while travelling in his Hyundai i10 car with Naveed Babu, Hizbul district commander for Shopian and Ganderbal and Hizbul operative Rafi Ahmed Dar.

Para, who won the polls from his constituency in Pulwama, was currently in jail.

Sources said that Para was produced before NIA court today where he was granted bail.

He may be released shortly from NIA custody, sources added.
