A Delhi court on Friday granted six-month interim bail to JNU students Umar Khalid and Anirban Bhattacharya accused in sedition case.
Both Umar and Anirban were asked to produce bail bonds of 25,000 each. Adding to that both accused were asked not to leave the city without informing the police personnel.
"I am granting them interim bail for six months," the judge said, adding that the duo will not leave the country without its prior permission.
Umar and Anirban, who are lodged in jail since February 23, had sought bail on the ground of parity with JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar, saying he has already been granted bail and the incident did not attract charges of sedition.
The two had surrendered to the police on the intervening night of February 23-24.
Kanhaiya was granted interim bail for six months by a Delhi High Court on March 2.
