TRINAMOOL Congress councillor Mohammad Iqbal alias Munna was granted bail against a bond of Rs 6,000 by a local court here on Wednesday in connection with the murder of a police officer in Garden Reach area during a college election campaign.

The district and session judge of the Alipore court granted Iqbal bail on the ground that he could look after his mother who is suffering from cancer. Iqbal,who has spent 77 days in jail,has already been granted bail in a related case in which he had been charged with instigating violence in a college.

The CID,which is probing the case,did not oppose the bail plea stating that the chargesheet in the case has already been filed.

“No further investigation was required against Iqbal. So the court granted him bail,” said Baishanar Chatterjee,counsel of Iqbal.
