The Bombay High Court granted bail to Vikram Bhave who is one of the accused in the alleged murder case of Narendra Dabholkar.

Vikram Bhave is currently under judicial custody at the Yerwada Central Jail and will be released after a cash bond of Rs.1 Lakh is submitted by him. 

According to the reports of the Central Bureau Investigation, arrested accused Sachin Andure and Sharad Kalaskar shot down Dabholkar on the V R Shine bridge near Omkareshwar temple in Pune. 

The two gunmen fired four rounds at him from point-blank range.

The bullets hit Dabholkar right in his chest and head and he died on the spot.

Bhave was arrested by the CBI in May 2019 after his connection with the sharpshooters came forward. 

CBI arrested Bhave after a statement was given by Kalaskar stating that Bhave helped them in conducting a recce of the area as well as in planning the escape route.

He then filed an appeal in the Bombay High Court after the Special Court in Pune denied his bail petition.

The division bench of Justice SS Shinde and Justice Manish Pitale decided this matter and ordered that Bhave cannot leave the jurisdiction of the court until the trial is over.

Also, a cash bond of Rs.1 Lakh is to be submitted by him at the time of bail.

He will have to visit the police station every day for one week and then twice a week for the next two months. 

In the later stage, Bhave will have to visit the police station once every week till the trial is over.
