Cuttack: The Orissa High Court today granted conditional bail to self-proclaimed godman Sarathi alias Santosh Raul in connection with two cases out of three filed against him by the state Crime Branch.
Granting the bail, the court has barred him from visiting the Barimula ashram in Kendrapara and the district as well.
Besides, the court has also directed him not to take out processions after being released from jail and to inform the investigating officers about his residing address.
He has also been asked to cooperate in the investigation process.
Despite the bail, he can’t walk free from the jail as one more case is pending against him.
Sarathi, who was arrested on August 8, 2015 by the Crime Branch from his Barimula ashram, has been lodged at the Choudwar Circle Jail in Cuttack since then.
