Kolhapur Court on Tuesday granted bail to the main accused in the writer Govind Pansare murder case. Though he has been granted bail, the court has asked him to submit his passport to the court and has also been banned from going to Kolhapur.

As per the bail conditions, Mr. Tawde's passport will be impounded and he can not leave the State.

However, Tawde, now lodged at the Yerwada Prison near Pune, will remain behind bars as he is also an accused in the 2013 killing of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar in Pune.

Tawde was allegedly a western commander of the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS), an offshoot of the right-wing group, Sanatan Sanstha.

Pansare, a Communist Party of India leader, was known for his rationalist views and was shot dead in Kolhapur on February 20, 2015.

Tawde is the second accused named in Pansare murder case by the state Special Investigation Team. His wife too was injured in the attack. Gaikwad was picked up from Sangli in September 2015, the first arrest in the Pansare case.
