At a special sitting on Saturday (a holiday), the Madras High Court granted conditional advance bail to PMK Youth Wing president Anbumani Ramadoss, who feared arrest in connection with a case registered against him and others on the charge of assaulting the staff manning a toll plaza and causing damage to the plaza, near Ulundurpet.

Justice B Rajendran, who granted the relief, said that in the event of arrest, Anbumani should be released on bail on his appearance before the magistrate concerned. He should deposit `2 lakh to the credit of the case pending before the judicial magistrate in Ulunderpet.

Since  three persons had already been arrested in connection with the incident that took place on August 8 last and the petitioner was willing to co-operate with the investigation to be conducted in this case and abide by any condition that might be imposed on him, this court was inclined to grant anticipatory bail to the petitioner, the judge observed.

The judge, however, remarked that the contention of Advocate-General AL Somayaji that the petitioner, as a leader of a political party, had failed to exercise proper control over his cadre from indulging in such activities, was well founded.

The petitioner, being a leader of a political party, ought not to have allowed his party cadre to indulge in such activities and he ought to have exercised adequate control over them, the judge added.
