Justice D G Deshpande granted bail to Wagal for four weeks.

Wagal is the second top-ranking Maharashtra police officer to secure bail in the case. Earlier, ACP Pradeep Sawant had secured bail from the high court.

Wagal has been admitted to the Nanavati Hospital, where he is scheduled to undergo surgery.

Wagal was arrested in October last year under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act. He was accused of
shielding Abdul Karim Telgi, the prime accused in the stamp paper scam.

The CBI has alleged that Wagal collected large sums of money from Telgi through assistant police inspector Dilip Kamath.
