Varun Agarwal (27) was arrested on May 29 from the suburban domestic airport here for allegedly raping a 22-year-old air hostess, who was in a live-in relationship with him.
Additional sessions judge NP Dhote today granted Varun

and to not tamper with evidence or interfere with the police
investigation," his lawyer Laxman Kanal said.
