The Kerala High court today granted bail to Saritha S Nair, an accused in the solar panel scam. The accused was given bail in two cases registered in Ernakulam North Police station. However, since there are other cases pending against her, Saritha cannot come out the jail.

Justice Thomas P Joseph directed the accused to deposit Rs. five lakh each in both the cases and produce fixed deposit receipts before the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate court (Economic offences) court here.
