Consider Rao’s age, health: HC to NIA

The Bombay High Court on Wednesday said the National Investigation Agency and the State government should consider the age and health condition of poet-activist Varavara Rao, arrested in the Elgaar Parishad, while making submissions on his bail plea.

A Division Bench of Justices S.S. Shinde and Manish Pitale posted Mr. Rao’s plea on medical grounds for hearing on Thursday.
