A magistrate court here on Saturday granted bail to a city journalist arrested by the Government Railway Police under the Official Secrets Act.

Tarakant Dwivedi, alias Akela, was arrested on May 18 for his article in Mumbai Mirror on how the weapons, bought after the 26/11 attacks, were going waste in the armoury where water leaked in monsoon. He was booked for trespass and related non-bailable offences.
