A local court on Wednesday granted bail to CPI(M) strongman Majid Master, about two months after his arrest in connection with the murder of a Trinamool Congress activist in North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal.

District Sessions Judge Asim Mondal granted bail to Master, an accused in the murder of TC activist Noor Ali Mollah on October 27, 2009, following an appeal.

The court had earlier turned down Master's bail plea on April 26.

Master, absconding after the death of the Trinamool supporter, was arrested on March 15 from Sashan in the Barasat police station area.

The police were in search of him with a non-bailable arrest warrant.-PTI
