Kashyap, an accused in the dowry death case of his daughter-in-law, was released on bail.

In the footage, he is shown walking out of the jail accompanied by an aide. As the former MP walks up to a supporter and receives a bouquet of flowers, the yet to be unidentified confidante, is seen distributing Rs 100 notes to policemen who readily accepted the 'tip'.

Kashyap is then seen walking through a crowd of supporters to a white-coloured SUV before leaving.

When reached for comments, Jail Superintendent SP Yadav said he had come to know of the incident and action will be taken against the policemen who received money from Kashyap's aide.

"Action will be taken against the guilty policemen after an inquiry. They will be suspended," he said.

Kashyap's daughter-in-law Himanshi was found dead in the bathroom of his home with a gunshot wound to her temple in April this year. Kashyap, his wife Devendri and son Sagar were arrested in the case. The accused have claimed Himanshi committed suicide.
