Virajpet court grants bail to Pramod Muthalik
A Virajpet court has given bail to Pramod Muthalik who had recently hogged national limelight after the activists of his Sri Rama Sene assaulted women at a pub in Mangalore.
The Kodagu police had taken Muthalik to custody after a Mangalore court had released him on bail in connection with the attack on the Mangalore pub.
Muthalik was arrested by the Kodagu police in connection with a case registered against him by the Gonikoppal police in 2003 for making a provocative speech at the Hindu Virat Samavesha at the College grounds.
The Virajpet JMFC court judge R. Ashok on Monday granted conditional bail to Muthalik after he furnished a bond of Rs 1 lakh. Advocate Machamada Nanaiah appeared for Muthalik.
After his release, Muthalik told reporters: “We are against observing Valentine’s Day on February 14. Observing Valentines’ Day is against our culture. We will continue our fight without taking law into our hands.”
