Sunny Deol gets bail

Last updated on: April 10, 2009 16:58 IST

Sunny Deol was today granted bail by a railway court in over a decade-old case of allegedly entering a platform without permission and pulling a train's emergency chain during shooting of a film.

In compliance with the Rajasthan High court's order last week, Deol accompanied by his counsel Suresh Sahani, submitted a personal bond of Rs 25,000 and two sureties of the same amount in the railway court before Additional Magistrate (Railway), Jaipur, Pooran Chand Sharma, who granted him bail.

The High Court had decreed that Deol could be arrested, if he fails to turn up in the court by April 17. Besides Deol, actress Karisma Kapur, fight master Tinu Verma and Satish Shah were accused in the 1997 incident.

They illegally entered the Narena railway station in Ajmer division for shooting the scene of film Bajrang and illegally pulled the chain of a train.

According to the complaint, when the train was about to leave the station, unit members pulled the emergency chain and the train had to wait for additional 25 minutes, affecting the service on the sector.
