In a major relief to Orissa Stevedores Limited (OSL) chief Mahimananda Mishra, the Orissa High Court on Tuesday granted him conditional bail in the high profile murder case of Seaways Shipping General Manager Mahendra Swain.
The court has laid down conditions of Rs 5 lakh bail bond and two sureties. Besides, it has asked the industrialist to submit his passport with the police and has barred him from visiting Paradip.
Despite getting the bail, the OSL chief will continue to remain in jail as he has not got bail in the Press Chhak bomb hurling case.
Seaways Shipping GM Mahendra Swain was murdered on October 26, 2016 in Paradip.
