At least 22 protesters have been killed and according to rights groups, more than a 1,000 people have been detained. It's hard to tell right now who emerged stronger after the protests - Rouhani or his hard-line opponents.

A senior officer of Delhi Police said, "Bilal was arrested from Delhi airport in a joint operation carried out by Gujarat ATS and Delhi Police special cell". "The accused played the main role and participated in the offence by receiving money from Pakistan and other countries through hawala operators, which was used in the attack and other terror activities in Jammu and Kashmir conducted by Lashkar-e-Taiba", the judge noted. "He was not travelling outside Kashmir for the first time", said Fatima. He told police that he was going to change his name and identity, sources said. The police has said that these claims are yet to be verified. Although Bilal has constructed a new house, his ancestral home remains on the compound.

A man arrested in connection with the 2000 Red Fort attack case, was on Thursday sent to 10-day police custody by a Delhi court. It was also submitted before the chief metropolitan magistrate, Deepak Sherawat, that Kawa had been absconding for the past 17 years and was declared a proclaimed offender. "Bilal and his family would stay with him every winter to get away from the cold weather here", said Hina.
