Arvind Kejriwal granted bail in graft case 

India opposition leader and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has been granted bail by a city court in a graft case.

His party and lawyers said this on Thursday.

He was granted temporary bail by India's top court in May ‘because of the (national) elections’, enabling him to campaign for his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the INDIA alliance of over two dozen opposition groups, of which AAP is a member. 
Kejriwal surrendered to prison authorities on June 1 as his temporary bail ended. 

The AAP and leaders of the INDIA alliance have dismissed the graft allegations against Kejriwal and other members of his party over the last two months, and said his arrest was an attempt by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government to deny opposition groups a level playing field in the polls.
