At last, senior Telugu Desam Party leader and former Denduluru MLA Chintamaneni Prabhakar was out on bail after being in jail for 66 days in connection with a series of cases filed against him.
Prabhakar had served the judicial remand for the last case filed against him and was released from Eluru sub-jail on Sunday on obtaining bail from the court. He was accorded a grand welcome outside the jail by his followers and TDP workers.
Chintamaneni was thrown behind bars for 66 days, as the police booked as many as 18 cases against him. If he got bail in one case, the police immediately arrested him in another case in East and West Godavari districts. The court continued the remand.
Finally, after completing the hearing in the final case, the Eluru district court has granted bail to former MLA.
TDP president and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu called up Chintamaneni and consoled him.
Stating that all the cases foisted against him by the YSR Congress government were false, Naidu told him to face the situation boldly and continue to fight against the government.
He alleged that as many as nine cases were foisted against Chintamaneni under SC/ST Atrocities (Prevention) Act. He said he would be going to West Godavari tour on Monday and meet Chintamaneni there.
