Malayalam actor Sreejit Ravi, who was arrested after a complaint by school girls that he had behaved indecently, was today granted conditional bail by a court here.
Additional District Court judge K P Indira granted bail to the actor on the condition that he deposits Rs one lakh and two solvent surieties of the like amount, surrenders his passport and appears before the investigating officer every week.
Ravi was arrested under IPC Section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of women) and POSCO (Protection of Children from Sexual offences) Act from a film shooting location at Ottapalam here yesterday.
The action followed after girls complained to their principal that the actor had taken their photo in his mobile and allegedly made indecent gestures while they were on their way to school, police said.
The girls had noted the number of the car and it was found to be that of Ravi, who, however, has denied the allegations.
