New Delhi, June 5 (IANS) A city court Thursday granted bail to Kiran Dhar, one of the accomplices of suspended Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) MP Babubhai Katara, in a case of human trafficking. Additional District Judge Kamini Lau granted bail to Dhar on furnishing a personal bond of Rs.30,000.

Katara was detained at Indira Gandhi International Airport April 18 while trying to fly a woman and a minor boy illegally to Canada.

The names of other MPs - Mitrasen Yadav, Ashok Kumar Rawat, Tahir Khan and Ramswaroop Koli - came up during the probe.

Dhar, arrested April 20, had sought her release saying she was just a typist and had no role in the case.

The police have booked Katara under Sections 419 (cheating by impersonation), 420 (cheating), 468 (forgery for cheating), 471 (using forged documents as genuine) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
