Bail for accused in BJP leader's murder

The Karnataka High Court on Monday granted bail to Govinde Gowda, husband of former corporator Varamahalakshmi who is accused in the murder of BJP leader Chikkathimmegowda.

Justice P S Dinesh Kumar granted bail on the grounds that another accused in the murder was also granted bail. Chikkathimmegowda was hacked to death on November 8, 2016, by a gang when he was riding a bike.

The petitioner's advocate had argued that as the charge sheet has already been filed, the petitioner would cooperate in the investigation. The judge granted conditional bail to Govinde Gowda.
