Telangana: A court in Warangal on Thursday granted bail to Telangana BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar, who was arrested in a case related to class X question paper leak. He was asked to furnish two surety bonds of Rs 20,000/- each. The BJP leader is set to be released tomorrow (Friday).

Following his arrest on Wednesday, he had moved a bail application in the court. Sanjay Kumar is a Lok Sabha MP from Karimnagar constituency. According to reports, he was picked up by a team of police from his residence in Karimnagar city and was initially put under preventive arrest, triggering protests by his party workers. 

"A bail application was moved last night in a Warangal Court. It is expected to be heard today. Also, there was a habeas corpus petition filed in the Telangana High Court.

That also would come up for hearing today," BJP leader and advocate Rachana Reddy told the media. 

Telangana BJP chief named as prime accused in case

Amid midnight drama, Sanjay was arrested by police on Wednesday after he was named as the prime accused by the city police in connection with the case of malpractice after a question paper of Standard 10 (SSC) board examination surfaced on groups of an instant messaging app. He was produced in a local court in the evening in Warangal.

About the case

According to Warangal Police Commissioner AV Ranganath, Sanjay Kumar conspired with an intention to create rumours and provoke a breach of peace of the ongoing SSC public examination in Telangana state after images of two question papers surfaced in social media, to defame the government for the circulation to create fear among students and their parents thereby to defame the duly elected state government.

The BJP President's arrest was unconstitutional and illegal and it will prove to be the last nail in the coffin of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao's repressive regime, the party's national general secretary and Telangana in-charge Tarun Chugh had said.
