KOCHI: Russian DJ Vasily Markelo, 37, alias DJ Psykovsky, who was arrested along with six Keralites for possessing banned narcotic substance, was released on bail on Monday. Psykovsky was granted bail by the Judicial First  Class Magistrate Court, Thopumpady. According to police officials, Vasily was granted bail on Sunday itself after he was produced at the residence of the magistrate. But, since he could not bring any solvent surety to execute the bail, he was lodged in jail. “Since the quantity of the seized narcotic substance was very small, all the accused were granted bail.
