KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Friday granted anticipatory bail to former Gujarat DGP R B Sreekumar, two former Kerala Police officers S Vijayan and Thampi S Durga Dutt, and former IB Officer P S Jayaprakash who were involved in the 1994 ISRO espionage case registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).


Sreekumar is the seventh accused in the case involving former ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan.


Last month on July 29, CBI had informed the Kerala High Court that it is suspecting the involvement of "enemy countries" including Pakistan in the 1994 ISRO espionage case.
The CBI had filed an FIR accusing 18 persons including former police officials of hatching a conspiracy.


The police officials mentioned the names of the accused in the espionage case include the former head of Special Investigation Team (SIT) Siby Mathews along with teammates A Vijayan, Thampi S Durga Dutt, then City Police Commissioner V R Rajeevan, and then Deputy Director, Intelligence Bureau, RB Sreekumar.


The Supreme Court had earlier ordered the CBI to look into the Justice DK Jain Committee report on the involvement of senior Kerala police officials who allegedly framed Narayanan in the ISRO espionage case.
