The Bombay High Court on Monday granted bail to 81-year-old poet-sctivist Varavara Rao, an accused in the Bhima Koregaon case for six months. The court granted him bail on on medical grounds.
Varavara Rao was arrested in 2018 in connection with the Bhima Koregaon case and has been lodged in jail since.
Varavara Rao was granted bail on the condition that he remains in Mumbai and be available for investigation whenever needed. The court has also directed that Varavara Rao be discharged from Nanavati Hospital.
