May 30 – A Day of Jail and Bail News

Mangaluru: Manjunath Shenoy aka Manju Neereshwalya, a freelance photographer, had been arrested by the city police on Sunday. He has been accused of assisting Naresh Shenoy, the prime accused in the murder of RTI activist Vinayak Baliga, to evade arrest.

He has also been charged with passing information to Naresh Shenoy about the developments of the murder case here and also assisting him in getting shelter in various points to evade arrest. Police sources said that Naresh has been hiding somewhere in Uttar Pradesh.

He is believed to be constantly changing his location, which has become a challenge for the city police to arrest him.

On Monday, JMFC II court in the city has granted bail to Manjunath. ACP Tilakchandra, who is heading the investigation team probing into Vinayak Baliga murder, has said that the high court has posted the hearing on the anticipatory bail application of Naresh Shenoy to June 1.
