VIJAYAWADA: The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Raja Prasad Babu, on Monday granted bail to P. Saibabu, an advocate in the city, who is an accused in an assault case.

The city police arrested the advocate late on Friday on the charge of assaulting the II Town SI, Sahera, and the home guard, Praveen, while they were on duty near Fish Market. The Magistrate sought to know from the SI as to what happened at the market on Friday night.

Meanwhile, the Bezwada Bar Association has charged the city police with misguiding the court to `favour' the SI, and expressed solidarity with the advocate.
