New Delhi: Suspended Jammu and Kashmir deputy superintendent of police Davinder Singh, arrested while accompanying two Hizbul Mujahideen militants in a vehicle bound for Delhi in January, was granted bail by a Delhi court on Friday in another terror-related case.

Singh and another accused in the case Irfan Shafi Mir were granted the relief by the court in a case filed by special cell of Delhi Police. The court noted that the probe agency had failed to file a chargesheet within 90 days from his arrest, as prescribed under law, their lawyer M.S. Khan said.

The particular case in which Singh has been granted bail is reportedly a Delhi Police terror case unrelated to the ferrying of the militants, which is being handled by the NIA, and for which Singh remains in custody.

The bail was granted on a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh and two sureties of like amount.
