Sanjjanaa, who was shifted to Central Jail on September 16, sought bail on medical grounds. The high court directed her to undergo a medical checkup.
Though the prosecution contended she can get treatment in prison itself, Justice Sreenivas Harish Kumar did not agree and allowed her plea. Senior advocate Hashmath Pasha, who appeared for Sanjjanaa, said the court ordered her release subject to furnishing a bail bond for Rs 3 lakh and two sureties for the same sum. She was directed to mark her attendance once a fortnight before CCB, not to leave India and co-operate with the probe, he added.
