Ranchi, Dec 15: Two former ministers of Jharkhand were Saturday released on interim bail from a Ranchi prison after spending over three years in judicial custody in a graft case.
Enos Ekka and Harinarayan Rai were released Saturday from Birsa Munda central jail of Ranchi. They had surrendered in August 2009 after arrest warrants were issued by a vigilance court in Ranchi.
The Supreme Court Thursday granted interim bail to both the former ministers.
The two independent legislators were ministers from March 2005 to November 2008 in state governments led by Arjun Munda and Madhu Koda.
