Magistrate D Sarvodaya Shettigar has granted him bail subject to furnishing of a bond for Rs one lakh apart from personal surety. He has also been directed not to influence  witnesses, not to destroy evidences, to  appear before the court without fail and also at the Barke Police station on  particular days.

Baliga’s case has become eight months old but not much progress is seen. The accused have come out on bail which is the most disgusting thing.
