Shruti Mahajan

The Supreme Court today agreed to hear on Monday a plea against the order of the Allahabad High Court granting bail to BJP MP Swami Chinmayanand.

The MP, who is accused of sexual exploitation and harassment by a law student from Shahjahanpur, was granted bail by the High Court and has thus been enlarged. This order of the High Court has been assailed by the complainant before the Supreme Court.

Senior Counsel Colin Gonsalves, representing the victim, mentioned the matter for urgent hearing today. He told the Bench headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde and Justices BR Gavai and Surya Kant that the victim fears danger to her life.

The Court has agreed to list the matter for hearing on Monday.
