The Bombay High Court granted bail to activist Gautam Navlakha, an accused in the 2018 Bhima Koregaon-Elgar Parishad case on Tuesday, 19 December, reported LiveLaw.

The bail was granted by a division bench of Justices AS Gadkari and SG Dige.

However, his bail order was stayed by the High Court for three weeks to allow the National Investigation Agency to appeal against the order before the Supreme Court, reported Bar and Bench.

Navlakha is accused of offences under several sections of the Indian Penal Code as well as the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).

The 73-year-old has been incarcerated since August 2018 in connection with the case. In November 2022, the Supreme Court allowed his transfer to house-arrest owing to his crumbling health condition.

Apart from Navlakha, Sudha Bharadwaj, Varavara Rao, Anand Teltumbde, Vernon Gonsalves and Arun Ferreira have been granted bail earlier in the same case. However, Rao is still awaiting releasing from the prison because of the extension of stay on his bail, the report added.
