Sudip Bandyopadhyay discharged from hospital, flies back to home

Bhubaneswar: After remaining under judicial custody for over four months, Trinamool Congress MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay, who was granted conditional bail from Orissa High Court on Friday in connection with Rose valley chit fund scam, returned to his home today.

The Parliamentarian, who was under treatment since January 20, flew back to his home town Kolkata from Bhubaneswar airport in the evening after being discharged from the hospital.

The court had granted him bail on the condition that he has to surrender his passport and deposit Rs 25 lakh as surety. The court had reserved the order on his bail plea after hearing arguments of both the prosecution and defence on May 8.

Bandyopadhyay was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with Rose valley chit fund scam on January 3.

He had moved special CBI court and Khurdha district and sessions court seeking regular bail on health ground.
