Kochi: The Kerala High Court Thursday granted conditional bail to CPI-M leader Zakir Hussain, who has been booked after a man was allegedly threatened over a business deal.
Zakir Hussain has been asked not to enter in the limit of Palarivattom police station for a period of six weeks. The court also asked him not to influence the witnesses in the case.
A case under non-bailable offence was registered against him on a complaint sent to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan by victim Jube Poulose in Ernakulam.
In his complaint, Poulose had alleged he was recently forcibly taken to a place by a gang, where Hussain threatened him with dire consequences over the business deal.
The CPI-M had removed Hussain from the post of party's Kalamassery area secretary.
