Kerala High Court grants pre-arrest bail to Trivandrum airport official in sexual assault case

Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Wednesday granted anticipatory bail to the former Chief Airport Officer (CAO) of the Trivandrum International Airport, Giri Madhusudana Rao, in the case where he was accused of raping an employee working under him.

Giri Madhusudana Rao was granted anticipatory bail on the condition that he appear before the investigating officer from January 20 to January 30. The order also states that Giri Madhusudana Rao's mobile phone must be produced before the investigating officer when required.

However, Giri Madhusudana Rao testified in court that examining his WhatsApp chat would reveal that he was not involved in the rape case. As a result, the phone is likely to be taken into custody immediately.

Giri Madhusudana Rao further alleged that he and the victim in the case had a consensual relationship and that she came to his flat of her own choice.
