CHENNAI: A division bench of the Madras High Court on Tuesday granted statutory bail to Thangaraj alias Tamilarasan, who had allegedly made an attempt on the life of V Narayanasamy, when he was serving in the office of the Prime Minister as Congress spokesman in New Delhi in 2014. A bench of Justices A Selvam and P Kalaiyarasan granted the bail while passing orders on a criminal appeal from Thangaraj.

The appeal was filed challenging the orders dated March 29 last of the Special Court for NIA Cases at Puducherry and to grant bail.

Thangaraj was arrested for offences under sections of Explosive Substances Act, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and under Sec. 120-B IPC (criminal conspiracy) in January 2014.

Invoking Sec. 167(2) CrPC, which stated statutory bail can be granted beyond 90 days of imprisonment without filing of chargesheet, the bench granted bail and set aside the order dated March 29 last of the Special Judge for NIA Cases, Puducherry.
