Activist Anand Teltumbde, an accused in Bhima Koregaon case, has filed an anticipatory bail application in the Bombay High Court on Monday.

Teltumbde, whoseanticipatory bail plea was earlier rejected by Pune sessions court, was later granted interim protection by the Supreme for four weeks which ends on February 11. On Saturday, Pune Police had arrested Teltumbde from Mumbai after Pune Sessions Court on Friday rejected an anticipatory bail of the activist and professor. He was kept at Ville Parle police station in Mumbai.Labelling the arrest as illegal, Pune Sessions Court, on Saturday, ordered the release of Teltumbde.As per the Supreme Court order, activist Teltumbde has interim protection till February 11. Meanwhile, he can approach the competent authority which includes sessions court, High court and Supreme Court for bail/pre-arrest bail, Pune Sessions Court observed.Teltumbde said that his arrest by Pune police in connection with the Bhima-Koregaon was "objectionable", hence, Pune Sessions Courts termed it illegal.Talking to media, Teltumbde said: I welcome the decision. But what police has done, the arrest and all the drama is objectionable.Last month, the Supreme Court dismissed Teltumbde's plea seeking quashing of an FIR registered against him by Pune Police in connection with the Bhima-Koregaon violence.On January 1 last year, violence had erupted during the 200th-anniversary celebrations of Bhima-Koregaon battle, leaving one dead and several injured.
