Advocate Swapana Kode Raut and Pravada Raut appeared for the actress in the court and Swapana Kode told ETimes, “My client’s interim relief by the Hon’ble Sessions Court has been confirmed. My client has been made an accused in the POCSO case and hence she has approached the court. My client has cooperated with the investigation and has given her say. The court based on the Documents has confirmed the order.”
Today, Ekta took to her Instagram handle and shared that she has been granted bail. She wrote, “For the past few days I have been judged and everyone is forming an opinion without knowing the truth or showing any empathy. I have been ridiculed and abused, My daughters pictures are circulated without knowing the truth”.
Towards the end, she wrote, “For all the people abusing me kindly note I repeat my silence is not my weakness, I respect the Judiciary and the Laws of the Country.I believe in Court of Law and hence I have given my say to the investigation agency. Truth will prevail”.
