Srinagar: A special court here Thursday rejected the bail plea of PDP leader Waheed Parra, the second time in five months, and decided to hear Friday arguments on the chargesheet filed against him, officials said.
Parra is considered a close aide of former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti.
The in-camera proceedings had been hearing the arguments of defence and prosecution over the maintainability of the case filed against Parra, who was initially arrested by the NIA in a different case related to terror-funding.
The complete judgement on the rejection of the bail application would be made available Friday, the officials said.
In a related development, the court also said that it would begin hearing arguments on the charges filed against Parra from Friday.
This is the second time in the last five months that the court has rejected Parra's bail application.
Dismissing the bail plea in February, the court had said the charges against him were "grave, serious and heinous in nature" and that a preliminary analysis of evidence collected till then showed he was allegedly aiding militancy in Jammu and Kashmir in the garb of a politician.
