Scientist Partha Sarathi Roy, arrested during an anti-eviction movement at Nonadanga on the EM Bypass earlier this month, was on Tuesday granted bail by the Alipore court.

Roy was arrested along with 68 others including the pro-Maoist Matangini Mahila Samiti Secretary Debolina Chakraborty, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Pallab Kanti Ghosh said.

Roy and Chakraborty were remanded to judicial custody.

Noam Chomsky had been among those who had demanded the release of Roy, alumnus of the Indian Institute of Sciences, Bangalore, and a faculty of Kolkata's Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, a premiere institute for development of basic sciences.
