The Chief Judicial Magistrate court here granted bail to P A Dasthakir, the second accused in the case relating to the leakage of intelligence communique from the police headquarters.  Granting the bail on certain conditions, the court asked him to surrender his passport.

 The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the case known as e-mail case had, in its remand report, said that Dasthakir, allegedly maintained regular contacts with members of banned communal outfits while he was hiding to evade arrest. Dasthakir had surrendered before the SIT officials after the High Court dismissed his anticipatory bail plea.

 In the report, Crime Detachment Assistant Commissioner K E Baiju said that it had been found that Dasthakir made calls to several people, who have alleged terrorist links. He had also attended the meetings of a banned extremist outfit held in Kozhikode and Hyderabad, it said.

 The report further said that the acts of Dasthakir, being the District Medical Officer (Homoeopathy), had tarnished the integrity of the State Government as he violated the code of conduct of a government employee.
