AIADMK (Amma) faction leader TTV Dinakaran, allegedly involved in the Election Commission bribery case, was on Thursday granted bail by a Delhi court against a surety bond of Rs 5 lakh.

His close aide Mallikarjuna, who was arrested in the case too, was also granted relief by special judge Poonam Chaudhary.

The court granted bail saying the duo was no longer required for custodial interrogation.

Both men were asked to furnish a personal bond of Rs 5 lakh each and two sureties of the like amount.

The court further asked them to not try and influence witnesses or tamper with evidence.

Both men were arrested on April 25.
