A terror suspect,who allegedly conspired to kill prominent politicians and journalists in three states,was released Tuesday night after a special court granted statutory bail since the NIA failed to file chargesheet against him.

“Ejaz Ahmed Mirza,working in DRDO as scientist,was released from Parapanaagrahara Central Prison here around 9 pm after the NIA court here granted statutory bail since the NIA failed to file chargesheet against him,” said Mohammed Sultan Beary,advocate representing the accused.

The court on February 28 ordered his release upon furnishing of two sureties for Rs 25,000 each and directed Mirza to surrender his passport. However,the court on Monday directed Mirza’s parents to furnish proper documents relating to sureties after it expressed dissatisfaction over them.

Other two terror suspects — journalist Muthi-Ur-Rehman Siddiqui and Yusuf Nalband — were released after the NIA court ordered their release on February 26. The court had observed that there was no prosecutable evidence against them.
