Cuttack: The Orissa High Court today granted conditional interim bail to BJD’s Choudwar-Cuttack MLA Pravat Biswal for two months. He was given the bail after furnishing two sureties.
The court has asked him to co-operate with the investigating agency and not to destroy any proof during the bail period. Besides, the HC has directed him to appear before it after two months.

After his bails were rejected by the lower courts, the legislator had moved Orissa High Court seeking bail and eventually got the interim bail today.
