Kundapur, April 10, 2015: The Additional District and Sessions Court has on April 9 Thursday granted conditional bail to Ramesh Bayari, the prime accused in the case of kidnap and murder of RTI activist Vasudeva Adiga in January 2013.
Adiga hailing from Kundapur was also a Congress worker. He was allegedly kidnapped on January 7 night last year. After vehement search, his body was found at Kadur in Chikkamagaluru on January 12.
Other accused in the case namely KS Raghavendra, Ravichandra, Vijayasarathi, Subrahmanya Udupa, Umesh, Naveen and Mohan Kumar who too were arrested were later released on bail.
But Bayari’s bail pleas were earlier turned down by the Udupi Sessions Court, High Court and even the Supreme Court.
The Additional District and Sessions Court this time conceded to the bail plea made by Bayari’s lawyer after the questioning of all main witnesses in this case was over.
