Actor John Abraham's 15-day jail sentence in a case of rash and negligent driving in 2006 was initially suspended by the Bombay High Court on Friday. The latest update is that he will now be let out on bail on a surety of Rs 20,000.

A sessions court had dismissed Abraham's plea challenging the 15-day simple imprisonment given to him by a lower court. It also rejected his plea to grant him time to surrender. The actor then applied in the Bombay High Court for bail.

In 2006, Abraham had crashed his bike and injured two pedestrians in Mumbai's Khar Danda area.

He had also reportedly taken the victims, both of whom worked in a shop together, to the Bhabha Hospital.

The actor had filed a plea against the conviction in the same month and the Bandra metropolitan magistrate court had sentenced the actor to a jail term of 15 days.
