The National Investigation Agency (NIA) gave a clean chit to Shah alias Liyaqat Bukhari, who was arrested by the Delhi Police in March 2013 for coming to India with the intention of indulging in terrorist activities. According to court sources, Patiala House Courts District Judge Amar Nath, delayed the hearing for September 21 during in-camera proceedings.

The NIA supplied a copy of chargesheet with documents to Shah. The court also allowed his application of seeking permanent exemption based on the grounds of his economic status which cannot afford him frequent travels from Kashmir to Delhi to attend hearings. Shah’s defense council Asim Ali had brought to the notice of the court that his client earned his livelihood by working as a labourer to provide for his five-member family.

The NIA dropped charges against Shah on Jan. 24 in a chargesheet against Sabir Khan Pathan, alleging that he was responsible for the placement of weapons and explosives in a guest house room near Jama Masjid.

Delhi Police said that a Special Cell team raided the Haji Arafat Guest House, recovering arms, ammunition and explosives, on the basis of his disclosure statement. On the other hand, the NIA filed a chargesheet against Pathan under charges dealing with forgery and various sections of the Arms Act and the Explosive Substances Act. Currently, Pathan is on the run.

The Delhi Police Special Cell arrested Shah on March 20, 2013, while he was returning from Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK) to the Kashmir Valley via Nepal, but was later released on bail.

The people in Jammu and Kashmir had protested against Shah’s arrest saying that he was simply returning home as per the state government’s policy of allowing people who had departed to PoK in the early 1990s to return.

Phishing attacks targeting organisations rose up considerably during the pandemic.

Phishing attacks targeting organisations rose up considerably during the pandemic, as millions of employees working from home became a prime target for cybercriminals. A large majority (83 per cent) of IT teams in India said the number of phishing emails targeting their employees increased during 2020, according to a report by UK-based cybersecurity firm Sophos on Monday.

"It can be tempting for organisations to see phishing attacks as a relatively low-level threat, but that underestimates their power. Phishing is often the first step in a complex, multi-stage attack. According to Sophos Rapid Response, attackers frequently use phishing emails to trick users into installing malware or sharing credentials that provide access to the corporate network," Sophos' Principal Research Scientist, Chester Wisniewski said in a statement. The findings also reveal that there is a lack of common understanding about the definition of phishing. For instance, 67 per cent of IT teams in India associate phishing with emails that falsely claim to be from a legitimate organisation, and which are usually combined with a threat or request for information.
