New Delhi, Apr 21 (UNI) The Supreme Court today granted leave and admitted the appeal filed by one of the convicts and co-conspirators, Abdul Latif Adam Momin, in the 1999 IC-814 Kandahar hijacking case in which three dreaded terrorists had been freed in exchange for the passengers of the Airbus 320. A division bench, headed by Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose and also comprising Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman, held,' We would hear the matter at a great length.'
