New Delhi, Feb 18 (IANS) The Delhi High Court has granted anticipatory bail to a man facing prosecution in a molestation case on the condition that he will plant 50 saplings in a government school.

Noting that the accused has joined the investigation into the case, Justice Sunil Gaur in his order, delivered last week, directed the principal of a school in Chander Nagar in East Delhi to ensure that 25 neem and 25 peepal saplings were planted at its premises.

The court also asked the investigating officer to file a compliance report in this regard.

The court has asked the accused to furnish a bail bond of Rs 15,000 with one local surety of like amount.

However, if the accused misuses the concession of pre-arrest bail or tampers with evidence, the state is at liberty to get the order revoked, it said.
