Kolkata: A special ED court on Monday granted bail to Manoranjana Sinh, one of the accused in the Saradha case and estranged wife of former MP Matang Sinh. She had got bail from SC in the case registered by CBI in the Saradha muddle.
While she will now be free to leave Kolkata, she will have to appear when asked by the central investigating agencies.
