Mumbai: A sessions court has granted bail to suspended assistant police inspector and former encounter specialist Ravindra Angre, arrested on charges of firing at a builder in nearby Thane city.
Angre was lodged in Thane jail for nearly a month on charges of firing at builder Mahesh Wagh in order to threaten him following a personal dispute.
He sought bail on the ground that he had been falsely implicated in the case.
Angre`s lawyer Anil Kanade argued that his client had denied firing at the builder and contended that he was being framed up due to previous enmity with the complainant.
Additional Sessions Judge P B Sawant granted Angre bail yesterday on a bond of Rs 50,000 with one or two sureties in the like amount. He has been asked to report to local police station every morning for an hour.
The Court also asked Angre not to leave the limits of Thane district without the permission of investigating officer besides restraining him from visiting the area where the victim and complainant resides.
