Kolkata: The Calcutta High Court on Tuesday granted anticipatory bail to Forward Bloc MLA Udayan Guha, who apprehended arrest for the killing of a youth, reported to be a Trinamool Congress supporter, during campaign for the just-concluded panchayat polls.

A division bench comprising Justice NN Mhatre and Justice Kanchan Chakraborty granted the anticipatory bail prayer of Guha and directed him to report to the investigating officer once a week.
