Bail for Masood

The Supreme Court on Monday granted bail to Congress leader Rasheed Masood, who was disqualified as Rajya Sabha MP after being sentenced to four year jail term in a corruption case.

A bench comprising of Justices Dipak Misra and Prafulla C Pant allowed his bail plea, taking into consideration the fact he had been in jail for over 13 months. The court asked him to deposit Rs 2 lakh and two surety of the same amount for his release. The bench also told Masood’s counsel  that the petitioner would not be allowed to travel beyond Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.
