NEW DELHI: A Delhi court has granted bail to Delhi University's Bhim Rao Ambedkar College Principal G K Arora in an abetment of suicide case of a woman who was employed with the institution.            

Metropolitan Magistrate (MM) Jagminder Singh granted the relief to Arora, noting that a sessions court had given him anticipatory bail last month, the victim's advocate Uday Gupta has said.  

The court had earlier summoned Arora and another official of the college Ravinder Singh as accused in the case, while rejecting the closure report of the police. It had said that there was sufficient prima facie material to proceed against them.            

Ravinder, who was denied anticipatory bail by the sessions court, has now moved Delhi High court which has asked Delhi Police to file a status report in the matter, Gupta said.       

According to the FIR, the woman had on September 30, 2013, had herself set herself on fire in front of Delhi Secretariat and later died at a hospital here.        She, in her dying declaration, had alleged that the principal and Ravinder tortured and forced her to commit suicide as the duo wanted to establish physical relations with her.   

The case was lodged against the two under section 306 (abetment of suicide) of the IPC.
