PRAYAGRAJ: The Allahabad high court on Wednesday granted a conditional bail to jailed SP MLA Nahid Hasan in a case related to Gangster Act. Hasan had won from Kairana in the 2022 assembly polls while contesting from jail. He was arrested just before the polls after several criminal cases were lodged against him.
While granting him the bail, Justice Krishan Pahal said Nahid Hasan would not intimidate the witness and would cooperate with police in the investigation.
Hasan was arrested on January 15 and is lodged in Chitrakoot jail for the past two months. Out of 18 cases lodged against him, he has already got bail in 17 from lower courts and for the one lodged under the Gangster Act, he approached the high court, which granted him the bail on Wednesday.
According to Nahid’s counsel, Imran Ulla, he would now be released on bail, as he is already on bail in all other criminal cases pending against him.
