Anticipatory bail of Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh's son Vikramaditya Singh, accused of rioting and trespassing, was extended for three days by a court here on Wednesday, an official said.

At least 12 activists of both Youth Congress and Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) were injured last week in a clash during a demonstration here against the central government's land acquisition ordinance.

The Youth Congress activists, led by Vikramaditya Singh, who was granted interim bail Jan 31, have been accused of smashing the windowpanes of the BJP party office.

Additional District and Sessions Judge Padam Singh, who heard the confirmation of bail, extended bail till Feb 7, the next date of hearing.

A day after the clash, Himachal Pradesh Governor Kalyan Singh Jan 29 summoned Director General of Police Sanjay Kumar, Additional Director General S.R. Mardi and Superintendent of Police D.W. Negi, seeking a report about the violence.

The opposition BJP met Kalyan Singh here and submitted a memorandum, demanding dismissal of the government.

Both the BJYM and the Youth Congress have lodged first information reports, accusing each other of indulging in violence, police said.
