Maharishi boss Varma out on bail

TNN | Feb 1, 2014,

BHOPAL: After spending almost a month in Bhopal Central Jail on charges of rape, chairman of Maharishi Vidya Mandir schools group, Girish Chandra Varma was released on bail on Friday afternoon.

Varma was arrested on December 29 for allegedly raping a former school teacher of Maharishi Vidya Mandir School for around 15 years and was sent to jail on judicial remand on December 1.

Varma spent most of this time in jail's hospital. For close to 10 days, he was kept in a barrack with 29 other under-trials, but was later shifted to hospital after her complained of blood pressure and increased sugar level.

A team of senior lawyers was trying for Varma's release since his arrest. But his bail application was cancelled twice in district and high court before it was finally granted on January 30.

Varma was greeted with handful of supporters outside the jail. After he came out the jail, he preferred not to interact with the media.
