He would be lodged at Taloja jail near Mumbai, PTI stated.

Last week on Friday, he had sought an interim bail from the NIA on the ground that due to his “advanced age”, he is at a “higher risk” of being infected by Covid-19 in jail.

Navlakha and several other activists have been booked under stringent provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) for allegedly having Maoist links and conspiring to overthrow the government.
