The NIA had filed the chargesheet against the accused in July last year.
The accused from Sitamarhi in Bihar, who used to work in Chennai, had allegedly made a call at the Delhi International Airport Limited’s call centre in Gurugram on August 8, 2019 that a woman named Zabina had reached the airport and could cause a blast on a Kuwait-bound flight.
Following the call, the Bomb Threat Assessment Committee had raised their security checks and offloaded Zabina, but allowed her to travel two days later after they found out the call was a hoax. Nasrudeen was later arrested.
According to the NIA, Nasrudeen had met Zabina in Chennai in May 2017.
