New Delhi: A man, who tried to hit Congress
general secretary Janardhan Dwivedi with a shoe here, was on Thursday granted bail by a local court.

Special Executive Magistrate S S Yadav, who holds the
court at Parliament Street police station, ordered the release
of Sunil Kumar on furnishing of a bond.

Kumar, posing as a journalist, had attempted to hit
Dwivedi with a shoe on May 6 after sneaking into a press
conference at the AICC headquarters here.
He furnished a bond before the magistrate undertaking
that he would not indulge in such activities.
Kumar, apparently miffed over yoga guru Ramdev`s eviction
from Ramlila ground, was arrested and booked under various
provisions of the CrPC dealing with breach of public
tranquillity.
