Sri Ram Sene chief Pramod Muthalik was on Monday granted bail by a court in Virajpet in connection with a case filed against him for making "a provocative" speech during December 2003.
Granting the bail, Principal Sessions Judge R Ashok directed Muthalik to furnish a bond for Rs one lakh and a surety of the like sum.
M B Nanaiah, the counsel for Muthalik, argued before the court praying for bail to his client.
The case was filed against Muthalik for allegedly making a provocative speech at the Hindu Samajotsav in Gonikoppal, in December 2003 and he had not responded to warrants issued since then.
This is the third case in which Muthalik had been granted bail in the last one week.
Muthalik was first arrested by the Belgaum police on Jan 27 in connection with a case for distributing pamphlets with provocative slogans in Davanagere on Janaury 4.
After he was granted bail in the case, a police team from Mangalore re-arrested Muthalik on January 28 in connection with the recent attack on a pub.
Muthalik was again arrested by Madikeri police on January 31 in the December 2003 case soon after he was granted conditional bail by a Mangalore court in the pub attack case.
