Madras High Court today granted conditional anticipatory bail to former Union minister and senior DMK leader T R Baalu's son T R B Raja, who apprehended arrest in a case related to a clash during the electioneering for the April 24 Lok Sabha polls.           

Holding a special sitting at his residence in view of court holiday, Justice A Arumugaswamy directed Raja to furnish a personal bail bond for Rs 10,000 and two more sureties to the satisfaction of Judicial Magistrate in Mannargudi and appear before the Judicial Magistrate-I in Tiruchirappalli every day till April 23.        

The anticipatory bail application was urgently taken up as per the direction of Acting Chief Justice Satish K Agnihotri.

According to prosecution, Raja has allegedly plucked out a flag post of AIADMK and replaced it with a DMK post, leading to a wordy duel with women cadre of AIADMK and a clash with them and his supporters.   

Vadugur Police in Thanjavur District recently filed a case against Raja on a complaint by a woman worker of AIADMK under Women Harassment Act and IPC.

Baalu is seeking election to Lok Sabha from Thanjavur constituency in the April 24 polls.
