SPB Charan has been granted interim anticipatory bail from the Madras Hight Court on Thursday in the sexual assault case filed by actress Sona Heiden. The producer apprehended the arrest after the item girl lodged a complaint under Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Harassment of Women Act and IPC section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty).
The Madras High court granted him bail for two weeks and has directed him to furnish a personal bond for Rs 10,000 with two sureties for like amounts. It has also ordered him to report daily until the next hearing. Meanwhile, reports say that SPB Charan and Sona Heiden are heading for a peace deal.
It is said that SP Balasubrahmanyam, who met Sona Heiden recently at a hospital, has requested her to take back the complaint. The item girl has soften her stand and has agreed to bury the hatchet but demanded a written apology from SPB Charan.
Last week, Sona Heiden came out in public by alleging that SPB Charan molested her at a private party, which was held at actor Vaibhav Reddy's residence.
