AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat High Court has extended the bail granted to former Bajrang Dal leader Babu Bajrangi in a post-Godhra communal riots case by one more week.

Bajrangi is serving life sentence till death in the 2002 Naroda Patiya massacre case.

Justice G R Udhwani granted an extension of one week to Bajrangi yesterday after taking into consideration the medical condition of his wife.

A week back, Bajrangi was granted a temporary bail of one week by the HC so he can be with his ailing wife.

In his plea, Bajrangi had pleaded that his wife has been hospitalised and will undergo an operation for ovarian tumor. Bajrangi had told the court that his presence would be needed at this stage.

As the one week period ended yesterday, Bajrangi once again approached the court with a prayer for an extension which was granted.

A special court had in August 2012 sentenced Bajrangi to life imprisonment till death in the Naroda Patiya massacre case in which 97 people, mostly of the Muslims, had been killed.
