Delhi HC grants bail to journalist Varun Hiremath in rape case


New Delhi, May 13 (ILNS) The Delhi High Court today granted anticipatory bail to ET Now anchor Varun Hiremath in a rape case filed against him by a 22-year-old girl.

A Single-Judge Bench of Justice Mukta Gupta granted pre-arrest bail to the journalist.

His anticipatory bail application was rejected by the Additional Sessions Judge at the Fast Track Courts in Patiala House Court, earlier this year.

The Court proceedings were held in-Camera.

The court previously had extended the interim protection granted to Hiremath.

The complainant woman has sought a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe in the matter.

In her new plea, the complainant woman has sought the Court’s direction to call for the status report of the investigation carried out by the Delhi Police and transferring the matter for further probe to either CBI or any other investigation agency.

The complainant woman, while seeking this direction from the High Court, cited eight major discrepancies in the probe conducted by the Delhi Police.

Senior Advocate Nitya Ramakrishnan and Advocate Jai Anant Dehadri appeared for the complainant woman, while Hiremath was represented by Senior Advocate and stalwart Congress leader Kapil Sibal and Advocate Vijay Aggarwal. ILNS/KR/RJ
