Lucknow:

Former Union minister Chinmayanand, who is out on bail in a case where he is accused of sexually abusing a law student, appeared before a special MP/MLA court in Lucknow on Wednesday.

Judge PK Rai fixed March 4 as the next date of hearing for the framing of charges.

Chinmayanand, 72, was released from the Shahjahanpur district jail after the Allahabad High Court granted him bail.

While granting him bail, the court also transferred Chinmayanand's trial from Shahjahanpur to Lucknow, taking note of the victim's apprehension that he could influence proceedings in his hometown.
