Reject Varavara Rao's medical bail plea: NIA to Bombay HC

Jan 27, 2021 20:52 IST

The National Investigation Agency on Wednesday urged the Bombay High Court to reject poet-activist Varavara Rao's bail plea. While the plea was filed on medical grounds, the probe agency argued against it, citing his recent health reports from Nanavati Hospital which stated that Rao was stable and fit to be discharged. Noting that the 81-year-old was being given 20 pills per day and was diagnosed with dementia, the HC bench asked the Nanavati Hospital to submit a fresh medical report with Rao's latest health conditions on Thursday. The activist who was arrested in June 2018 in the Elgar Parishad case is currently admitted to the Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai.
