HC grants conditional bail to Archana Nag

The Orissa High Court granted conditional bail to Archana Nag, mastermind in the sensational honeytrap and extortion case.

However, the conditions put forth by the court are yet to be ascertained. As the investigation into the case was yet to be completed, it was expected that Archana has been told by the court to cooperate with the investigating agency, not to threaten  the witnesses and not to go outside the State or country without  the court permission.

The HC earlier on March 14 had sought the status report on the police investigation into the honeytrap racket while hearing the bail plea. The court had asked the police to submit the status report on the progress made in the investigation in the sensational case, sources said.

The High Court had earlier in January called for the case diary relating to her arrest on an FIR registered against her at Nayapalli police station in Bhubaneswar. Archana had moved the HC for regular bail in connection with the sextortion case filed by Ollywood filmmaker Akshay Parija at the Nayapalli police station on October 29, 2022, after rejection of her bail plea by the lower court last year.
