The Supreme Court on Friday granted bail to Kolkata industrialists Ashok Kumar Todi and Pradeep Kumar Todi in the Rizwanur Rehman suicide case.

A Bench of Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and P Sathasivam rejected the CBI's argument that the accused will influence the investigation if freed on bail.

The apex court, however, granted liberty to the CBI to move an application for cancellation of bail if and when the accused indulge in such attempts.

Ashok Kumar Todi and his brother Pradeep have been accused by the CBI of abetting the suicide of Rizwanur Rehman due to his matrimonial relationship with the former's daughter Priyanka Todi.
