The Allahabad High Court on Monday granted bail in a law student's alleged rape case to former BJP leader Swami Chinmayanand. He was arrested in September last year after the 23-year-old woman accused him of sexual harassment and blackmail. The woman was a student of the Chinmayanand-controlled SS Law College in Shahjahanpur in Uttar Pradesh. A Special Investigation Team (SIT) formed on the Supreme Court's instructions is investigating the case. Chinmayanand was expelled from the BJP after his arrest.
