A day after Vishnu, the grandson of liquor baron Adikeshavulu - arrested for rash driving- surrendered to the police after escaping from custody on Friday, a Bengaluru court granted him bail.
The First APMM Court granted conditional bail to Vishnu, days after his SUV was involved in a road accident and the police reportedly confiscated marijuana from the vehicle.
Vishnu was then booked under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, along with the charge of rash and negligent driving.
Granting him conditional bail, the court directed Vishnu to appear before the investigating team whenever required, reports Deccan Chronicle.
Vishnu's SUV had rammed into an Omini van on September 27 in Jayanagar. The Omni toppled over and six people including two children were injured in the accident. Although the police got him in their custody and took him to Mallya Hospital in Bengaluru for treatment, Vishnu escaped from the hospital on Friday.
He later surrendered to the Central Crime Branch police on Tuesday evening.
The BBMP has also reportedly filed a complaint with the Jayanagar police, alleging that Vishnu damaged a 25 ft footpath near South End Circle in the accident.
