BENGALURU: A week after Ragini Dwivedi walked out from the jail in the drug case, the special NDPS court on Friday granted bail to Aditya Alva and four others.

A senior police officer from CCB said that Aditya Alva, Verena Khanna, Ravi Shankar, Rahul Thonse and Aditya Agarwala have been granted bail from the court even though CCB filed an objection to challenge the bail but in vain.

The court earlier had also granted bail to Niyaz Mohamed, Vaibhav Jain and Vinay Kumar while A1 accused in the case, Shivprakash Chippi was also on the run and was never arrested but managed to get bail from Supreme Court.

The CCB now have almost completed the investigation and would file charge sheet soon, a police officer said.
