"The Sessions Judge has granted bail to Madan Mitra. After receiving the order, we will move the High Court in the first available date to seek cancellation of the bail," a CBI official told PTI.

He said that this had happened earlier when the High Court had cancelled the bail of Mitra which was granted by a lower court last year. Sessions Judge Uttam Kumar Nandy on Friday granted the former state transport minister bail on two sureties of Rs 15 lakh each.

The court also directed Mitra, who was arrested on 12 December, 2014, to surrender his passport to the CBI and appear before the CBI Investigating Officer once every week. He was also directed not to go out of Kolkata.
