Hyderabad, June 27 (Hydnow): Bombay high court today dismissed a bail petition moved by prominent civil rights activist from the State Varavara Rao. The bail petition was filed by the counsel for Rao seeking his enlargement on his poor health grounds.
However, the counsel for the NIA opposed the bail to Rao by citing that the allegations made against him were very serious. This has prompted the HC to reject his bail petition. Rao is facing charges of plotting a conspiracy for the murder of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Rao was arrested by the NIA in November 2018 and has been languishing in Pune based Erwada jail since then. (Hydnow)
