Mumbai, February 22

The Bombay High Court on Monday granted interim bail for six months on medical grounds to ailing poet and activist Varavara Rao, an accused in the Elgar Parishad-Maoist links case.

The court said it could not be a “mute spectator” and permit 82-year-old Rao’s health condition to deteriorate in custody. — PTI
