A local court, on Thursday, granted bail to the Sector 34 resident, Pramod Garg, who allegedly tried to set himself ablaze in front of the Police Headquarters, Sector 9 on Wednesday.
The accused was later arrested in front of the residence of the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Alok Kumar in Sector 16.
Pramod Garg has been booked under three cases by the UT police. Two cases are pertaining to economic offenses and one of eve teasing.
One of the police officials informed that Pramod, who is a property dealer by profession, is booked in two cases involving one of a fraud of Rs 44 lakh and another of Rs 20 lakh.
