Hyderabad (Telangana),[India] Mar. 24 (ANI): A Hyderabad court on Friday granted conditional bail to Swami Aseemanad in 2007 Mecca Masjid blast case, paving way for his release from jail after seven years. "The Hyderabad court cited the bail orders in the Samjhauta Express blast case and Ajmer blast case to give conditional bail to Aseemanand in the Mecca Masjid case," advocate J.P.Sharma told ANI. Sharma stated that the documents verification process will decide Aseemanand's release from jail. "If the bail bonds are accepted, the accused may be released in the evening. If some verification is required then the court will grant some date, perhaps Monday or Tuesday," Sharma added. Aseemanand has been asked to surrender his passport and not leave Hyderabad without permission from the court. In August 2014, the Punjab and Haryana Court had granted bail to Aseemanand in the 2007 Samjhauta train blast and on March 8 this month, he was granted bail by a Jaipur court in the 2007 Ajmer Dargah blast case as well. As many as nine people were killed and several others injured when an IED exploded inside the Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad on May 18, 2007. (ANI)
