Kolkata: Scientist Partha Sarthy Roy, who was in jail for the last ten days for launching an agitation against slum eviction, was on Wednesday set free by the Kolkata jail authorities.
He was released a day after the Alipore court in Kolkata granted bail to the scientist.

Roy was arrested by the state police during an anti-eviction movement at Nonadanga on the EM Bypass earlier this month.
Roy was arrested along with 68 others including the pro-Maoist Matangini Mahila Samiti Secretary Debolina Chakraborty.
