KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Thursday suspended the bail condition imposed by the Manjeri Chief Judicial Magistrate Court directing four Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel, who are accused in the scuffle at Calicut International Airport, to deposit Rs 5.35 lakh each.

A Division Bench comprising Justice V K Mohanan and Justice Raja Vijayaraghavan passed the order on the petition filed by the accused CISF personnel - Lokendra Singh (Uttar Pradesh), Vinay Kumar Gupta (Bihar), Rakesh Kumar Meena (Rajasthan) and Ramoshi Deepak Yaswanth (Maharashtra) seeking to annul the bail condition.

The petitioners submitted that they are in jail only on account of their inability to raise the bail amount set by the court, especially since they are in jail far away from home.

The petitioners submitted that though the Magistrate court had granted bail on July 2 to the CISF personnel, they are yet to get bail due to what is termed as the ‘incredibly inflated amount’ of damages set by the airport authorities - to the tune of Rs 73.13 lakh.
