A 94-year-old Muslim man was granted interim relief by the Supreme Court of India on Friday as his parole was extended till July.

The petitioner, Dr Habib Ahmed Khan, returned home after 27 years with his family. He will now be able to celebrate his Eid, first time in the last 27 years. This is also his first Ramzan that he is spending  at home instead of in jail, reported Clarion.

Dr. Habib was arrested in 1994 in connection with a series of train blasts in 1993. He was convicted along with two others in 2004.

According to the Clarion report, the relief came following efforts by Maulana Syed Arshad Madani, President of Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind, the organisation said in a press release.
