The Calcutta High Court on Monday granted interim bail to former West Midnapore district police chief Bharati Ghosh’s husband M.A.V Raju till November 30, nearly two months after his arrest in an extortion case.

A divisional bench of the Calcutta High Court directed Raju to furnish a bond of Rs 1 lakh to the court of Midnapore chief judicial magistrate with two sureties of the same amount as a condition for granting the interim bail.

He was also directed not to leave Kolkata without permission from the court and meet the investigating officers of the state CID once a week in the ongoing probe.

Raju was arrested on August 7 following a probe into alleged extortion and illegal exchange of banned notes for gold in West Midnapore district’s Daspur.
