Varavara Rao gets 6-month ‘medical’ bail in Elgar case

Tuesday, 23 February 2021 | PNS | Mumbai

More than two years after his arrest in the Elgar Parishad-Bhima Koregaon case, the Bombay High Court on Monday granted conditional bail to poet and writer Pendyala Varavara Rao for six months on medical grounds.

Releasing to the 82-year-old Left-wing activist for a period of six months against a personal bond of `50,000 and two solvent sureties for equal amounts, a HC division bench of Justices SS Shinde and Manish Pitale noted, “We are of the opinion that appropriate conditions need to be imposed on the undertrial even if he is to be released on bail on medical conditions”.
