The Supreme Court has granted conditional bail to Narsapuram MP K Raghurama Krishnamraju in the sedition case. After hearing the arguments from both ends, the tribunal commented that it was reasonable to file a bail petition in the Supreme Court. Bail can be taken on own guarantee, with two sureties and surety bonds of Rs one lakh before the trial court within 10 days. The SC ordered to file these in Guntur CID court and seek bail.
The following are the Bail Conditions:
He should go to trial if called by the investigation officer.
The trial must take place in the presence of a lawyer.
Do not speak to the media regarding this case.
Should not influence the investigation.
Not to tamper evidence or witness
No interviews should be given on media or social media.
Injuries shouldn’t be displayed anywhere like previously shown.
The SC warns to take serious action if he violates any of the above rules.
Recently, AP CID officials arrested Raghuram under the sections IPC 120B( Punishment of Criminal conspiracy with others), 124A( making defamatory remarks), 153A(inciting hatred among others), and 505(personal abuse). Despite the notice given under these sections, the police said Raghuramaju did not agree to take or sign the notice and that his wife Ramadevi also refused to take the notice. However, they posted it on the wall of the house. The notice states that the Mangalagiri CID police have registered a case (12/2021) against him.
