Justice D. Ramesh of the Andhra Pradesh High Court on Thursday granted bail to six persons accused of posting derogatory messages against some judges of the Supreme Court and High Court on social media in the year 2020.
They are Jalagam Venkata Satyanarayana, Kishore Kumar Reddy, G. Sridhar Reddy, A. Gowthami, Srinath and Avuthu Sridhar Reddy.
