New Delhi: A court on Saturday granted bail to former Delhi University professor S.A.R. Geelani, arrested on sedition charges.

Additional Sessions Judge Deepak Garg granted bail to Geelani.

On Friday, the Delhi Police had told the court that the allegations against Geelani were grievous.

Geelani, arrested after police registered a case against him for organising a meeting at Press Club in Delhi on February 9 to mark the death anniversary of parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, had moved a fresh bail application before the court on Wednesday.

In his application, he said he was in judicial custody since February 16 and no fruitful purpose would be served by keeping him in custody further. He also said that he had co-operated in the investigation and there was no evidence against him.

An earlier bail plea of Geelani was rejected by a magistrate on February 19. Police alleged that anti-national slogans were raised by a section of Kashmiri students at the event.
