NEW DELHI — India’s top court has granted bail to a journalist arrested for his role in a bomb attack that wounded the wife of an Israeli diplomat in February.
The Supreme Court on Friday also ordered Syed Mohammad Kazmi to hand over his passport to the court.
The 50-year-old journalist, who reportedly worked for Iranian news organizations, has been in prison since March and faces charges relating to terrorist activities and attempted murder. He is the only person arrested in the attack and denies the charges.
Documents obtained by The Times of India in July showed that Indian police believed Iran’s Revolutionary Guards were behind the attack which injured Tal Yehoshua Koren.
The same day as the New Delhi blast, a bomb was discovered in an Israeli diplomat’s car in the former Soviet republic of Georgia. The next day, three Iranians accidentally blew up their house in Thailand. Israeli authorities linked Iran to the incidents. Iran has denied involvement.
