New Delhi: Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) leader Sanjay Raut on Wednesday (November 9, 2022) stepped out of Mumbai jail after a court granted him bail in a money-laundering case. Raut waved to hundreds of Shiv Sainiks who had gathered outside the Arthur Road jail in Mumbai awaiting his release. Raut was granted bail by a special court in a money laundering case a few hours back.

As the word spread that Raut got bail, Shiv Sena workers gathered outside the special court and burst firecrackers and smeared each other with ‘gulal’.
Many Sainiks also assembled outside the residences of Sanjay Raut in suburban Bhandup and Shiv Sena leader Uddhav Thackeray in Bandra.
Raut has been in custody since July 31 when he was arrested by the ED in a money laundering case linked to the Patra ‘chawl’ (tenement) redevelopment project.
A special court granted bail to Raut in the afternoon.
In a relief for Raut, the Bombay High Court refused to grant an urgent stay on the bail as sought by the Enforcement Directorate. The HC posted the matter for hearing on Thursday.
Raut’s lawyer said they will try to complete the formalities by the evening to facilitate his release from prison.
The lower court also granted bail to the parliamentarian’s associate and co-accused Pravin Raut.
