Written by: Staff

Kolkata, May 13 (UNI) Actor-model Shayan Munshi, an eyewitness in the Jessica Lal murder case, was granted conditional bail this evening by Additional Judicial Magistrate in Barrackpore court after he was arrested in the morning.

The Judicial Magistrate has asked him to submit his passport to the NSCBI Airport Inspector in-charge.

He has also asked Munshi to report to Delhi Police and submit a report to this court on compliance in this respect.

Munshi was apprehended by the police under Section 41 CrPC at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport at Dum Dum.

Official sources said he was first intercepted by the Immigration officials at the international terminal where he had come with his father and wife. He was later handed over to the NSCBI Airport Authority police station for interrogation.

Munshi, along with his father, was about to leave the country, allegedly ignoring the court order. Earlier, he had deposed before a Delhi court about the incident in which model Jessica Lal was murdered but later turned hostile.

A sessions court in Delhi had acquitted all the nine accused in the case that was revived on the basis of a petition challenging the verdict on behalf of the police.
