Mumbai Live Updates: A day after he was released from prison, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut Thursday praised Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for the “good decisions” he has taken for the state. He said he would soon meet Fadnavis, and also Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah to “convey what he has faced” in the last 100 days. Raut was granted bail and released from prison on Wednesday, where he was lodged in connection with the Patra Chawl case.

The Supreme Court allowed Bhima Koregaon violence case accused Gautam Navlakha to be shifted to house arrest. In its order, the bench noted, “We consider it appropriate to grant house arrest given his age. Still further, our attention is drawn to the multiple medical problems the petitioner is faced with, and that charges have not been framed in a trial that will not happen in the foreseeable future.”
