Naidu gets regular bail, can resume activities
AMARAVATI: The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Monday granted regular bail to TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu in the Skill Development Corporation scam case, noting that discretion to grant bail should be exercised judiciously in a humane manner. TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh termed the bail as a ‘moment of victory’ for the people. The court converted Naidu’s four-week interim medical bail in this case into absolute bail and ordered the former chief minister’s release on regular bail, considering his age, old age-related ailments, nonflight risk and other reasons. However, the interim bail conditions such as refraining from making any public comments related to the Skill Development Corporation scam case or organising or participating in public rallies and meetings will continue to be in force till November 28. The High Court said these conditions will be relaxed from November 29. The court directed Naidu to produce medical reports to Special Court in Vijayawada on or before Nov 28.
