A sessions court granted anticipatory bail on Wednesday to Binoy Kodiyeri, son of a senior Kerala CPI(M) leader, in connection with a rape case.
The anticipatory bail application filed by Kodiyeri (37), son of Kerala state secretary of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) K Balakrishnan, was allowed by Additional Sessions Judge M H Shaikh.
A detailed order is awaited.
A 33-year-old former bar dancer had alleged that Kodiyeri had sexually abused her after promising to marry her and that she had an eight-year-old son from him.
He had denied the allegations.
Based on the woman's complaint, the Oshiwara police had filed a case against Kodiyeri for cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property and punishment for rape.
