Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Mohit Kamboj has been granted interim bail from arrest on suspicion of fraud.
A day prior to his bail grant, the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Mumbai Police registered a case of fraud against BJP leader Mohit Kamboj following a complaint by the manager of Indian Overseas Bank.
The BJP leader filed an anticipatory bail petition, to which Kamboj got his bail from the court. However, the bail has been granted with conditions. The police have to cooperate in the investigation and the BJP leader has to appear before the police for investigation on June 2 and 3.
Kamboj's movement out of the city has also been restricted, he is allowed to move out of Mumbai city with the permission of the Police.
