New Delhi [India], August 10 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Wednesday granted regular bail to activist and poet P Varavara Rao, who was accused in the 2018 Bhima Koregaon violence case.

He was arrested on August 28, 2018, from his home in Hyderabad and was an under-trial in the Bhima Koregaon case for which FIR was lodged by the Pune Police at Vishrambagh Police Station on January 8, 2018, under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and several other provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).
