Raipur: A Chhattisgarh Court Monday
directed activist Binayak Sen to surrender his passport as a
bail condition in line with the Supreme Court order.
Additional District and Sessions Judge BP Verma
directed that Sen be released on a personal bond and surety of
Rs 50,000 each, three days after the activist, who was
sentenced to life imprisonment on sedition charges for helping
Naxals set up a network, was granted bail by the apex court.
The direction came after Sen`s counsel Mahendra Dubey
submitted to the court the apex court order which had left it
to the trial court to impose the conditions for Sen`s release
on bail. The 61-year-old old activist is lodged in a jail here
since he was convicted in December last year.
The court asked Sen not to leave the country and
appear in the High Court for the trial whenever required.
"We have struggled for long. We will continue to work
for the tribals," Sen`s wife Ilina, who was present in the
court along with their daughter and other activists, said.
