The court had last week granted similar relief to 14 accused while the Bombay high court gave bail to four accused in this connection.

Five of the 63 persons were earlier discharged after police found that there was no case against them.

Two youths were killed and 52, including 44 policemen, injured on August 11 when a rally called to protest alleged atrocities on Muslims in Assam and Myanmar turned violent. The protesters went on a rampage, attacking police, media persons and vehicles.
