Supreme Court grants bail to Ashok Todi
January 16, 2009 13:27 IST
The Supreme Court on Friday granted bail to Kolkata industrialists Ashok Kumar Todi and his brother Pradeep Kumar Todi in the Rizwanur Rehman suicide case.
A bench of Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and P Sathasivam rejected the Central Bureau of Investigation's argument that the accused will influence the investigation if freed on bail.
The apex court, however, granted liberty to the CBI to move an application for cancellation of bail if and when the accused indulge in such attempts.
The duo has been accused by the CBI of abetting the suicide of Rizwanur Rehman after he married Ashok Todi's daughter Priyanka.
