Jharkhand Mukti Morcha chief Shibu Soren was on Tuesday granted bail by a Dumka court in connection with a case of 2004 relating to election violence.

But Soren will not be freed till his production before the Tis Hazari court in connection with two other cases.

Sibu Soren was produced before the First Class Judicial Magistrate Janardan Singh, who after hearing the petition, granted bail to Soren on a personal bond of Rs 5,000.

The JMM chief, who has obtained bail from the Jharkhand high court in connection with two cases, will not be freed till his production before the Tis Hazari Court, Delhi in connection with a murder case, according to the Jamtara Jail Superintendent A K Sinha.

On Wednesday Soren will be produced in a Godda court in connection with another case relating to beating up of the Block Development Officer.

Soren would have to appear before the Giridih court on September 9.

September 13 is the scheduled date for his production in the Tis Hazari Court, Sinha said.

The Jharkhand high court granted bail to Soren on September 3. Soren has been in judicial custody since August 2 after his surrender before a Jamtara court. Before his surrender, Soren had to quit the Union coal ministry.

Soren could not be released today as he was unable to give his passport number to a Giridih court as demanded.

His passport is in the custody of the CBI. The JMM chief is to be produced again in Giridih on September 9. Soren is an accused in the Chirrudih massacre case of 1975 and Pirtand murder case of 1974. The Chirrudih murder case is being tried in Jamtara and the Pirtand murder case in Giridih.
