The accused had ended his three-year term (maximum imprisonment for a minor) back in December 2015 and there was a lot of hue and cry about his release.
This is not the first time that he has been suspected to have terror links. Before he was released, the IB had pointed out to the fact that he was in close proximity to a Kashmiri inmate at the juvenile home. The inmate was involved in the 2011 Delhi High Court bombing.
During this time, the IB believes the Kashmiri cellmate brainwashed him and prompted him to join hands with the jihadis.
