Power theft case: Anticipatory bail for actor Rati Agnihotri

Actress Rati Agnihotri and husband Anil Virwani, booked for electricity theft by the Worli police, were granted anticipatory bail by a Sessions Court on 17-02-2017.

The two were booked under section 135 of the Electricity Act, 2003, on January 19.
