Nineteen-year-old Aakash Dalal of New Brunswick is charged with conspiracy, aggravated arson, bias intimidation and criminal mischief.

Dalal appeared in court in Hackensack Monday morning. His plea was entered by his attorney.  He’s being held on $2.5 million bail.

After Dalal was arrested Friday, Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli characterized him as an instigator in the January firebombings allegedly carried out by then-19-year-old Anthony Graziano.

Dalal is alleged to have encouraged Graziano and showed him how to make the bombs, though he’s not believed to have participated in the acts themselves.

The attacks included firebombing of a house of worship where a rabbi and several family members were sleeping upstairs.
