Ranchi: Jharkhand High Court on Tuesday granted bail to mining scam accused Madhu Koda in a tax evasion case but the former chief minister will continue to remain in jail in connection with other cases.
The court of Justice H C Mishra granted the bail after Koda appealed against the Income Tax department`s charges against him under various IT sections for evading tax since 2004.
The independent Lok Sabha member, who recently secured a bail from Supreme Court in a case, is in judicial custody from November 30, 2009 in connection with money laundering and alleged illegal investments.
