Cultural activist Aparna Marandi, an accused in a six-year-old case of setting fire to seven vehicles at Kantikund in Dumka, was granted bail on Monday by the Jharkhand High Court.

Ms. Marandi was detained, along with her four-year-old son Alok, Hazaribagh social activist Sushila Ekka and Dhanbad activist Baby Turi, at Hatia station when she was on her way to Hyderabad on December 8, 2012. The others were allowed to go after two days. But Ms. Marandi’s bail application was rejected by the Court of Judicial Magistrate and the District Court in Dumka.

Ms. Marandi has been falsely accused, like her husband Jiten Marandi, who was accused of killing politician Babulal Marandi’s son but was later acquitted by the High Court, said Marxist Coordination Committee core committee member Sushanto Mukherjee.
