Metropolitan magistrate Jay Thareja said, "All the accused are released, subject to their signing this order as acknowledgement of their undertaking to this court that they will face trial, appear on all the dates of hearing and abide by the conditions imposed by this court, during the trial."

The court fixed February 23 as the date of hearing in the case.

The courtroom at the Patiala House Courts was packed with supporters and members of AAP who shouted "no bail, no bail" while the order was pronounced.

The court released Kejriwal, Bhushan, Manish Sisodia and 23 others on an undertaking that they will appear before it to face trial in the case after they refused to seek bail before it.

Bhushan objected to the use of words "released on bail" in the initial order which was later changed by the judge by dropping the word bail from the order.
