Lieutenant Colonel Shrikant Prasad Purohit donned the Army’s uniform for the first time on Wednesday after being granted bail by the Supreme Court in 2008 Malegaon bomb blast case.
Among the conditions imposed was that he would not leave India without prior permission of court and not directly or indirectly make any inducement to any witnesses.
The court, however, made it clear that the grant of bail to Purohit, shall be no ground for similar relief to other accused in the case and each plea for relief will be considered on its own merits.
He was released from the Taloja prison in Navi Mumbai on August 23 after which he had reported to the liasoning unit of the Army’s Southern Command. A team of Military Police and Quick Response Team of the Army had come to take him.
