Supreme Court bench of Justices KM Joseph and BV Nagarathna granted anticipatory bail to Raj Kundra and other accused in the several FIR registered against them in porn videos case.

Supreme Court bench of Justices KM Joseph and BV Nagarathna, taking into consideration that the State of Maharashtra did not oppose the application for anticipatory bail filed by the Petitioner, allowed the application and ordered, “Common FIR’s have generated applications seeking anticipatory bail. Anticipatory bail has been denied by the High Court.”

Bench added, “There were orders of interim protection however. We heard learned counsels. The learned counsel for the respondent state would take the following stand – chargesheets have been filed. All that is required is that in case the court is inclined to grant anticipatory bail it be made clear that the petitioners will cooperate if their presence becomes necessary. “

Bench said, “Having heard the parties, we say that these are cases where the petitioners should be allowed anticipatory bail subject to conditions imposed by the trial court. In case they are required in the future they should fully cooperate. The trial court should necessarily incorporate this as a condition.”

Petitioner Counsel submitted to the court that the application for anticipatory bail had been filed by the petitioner since the chargesheet had already been filed in the main case. It was further argued that the petitioner had already been released on regular bail in that case after 60 days of being in prison.

Also submitted that there are several FIR’s that have been filed arising out of the same movie. Separate FIRs have been filed by different people against the same movie. And so the petitioners seek anticipatory bail from the Hon’ble Court.
