This is to inform -
That Ajay Tg was finally released from prison late this evening on the 5th of August 2008.
That the combined efforts of several activists , friends , film makers , journalists and organisations put enough pressure on the Chattisgarh police to accept that they did not have any evidence against Ajay TG.
That the Chattisgarh police failed to file the charge sheet against Ajay TG within the mandatory 90 day period . Ajay was therefore granted statutory bail .
That the police have not closed the case. The bail order placed conditions on Ajay which required him to present a personal bond of Rs Fifty Thousand, two sureties of Rs. 25,000 each, submit an affidavit of a list of his movable and immovable property, appear at the local police station on the 2nd Monday of every month and denied him the right to travel outside India without the permission of the court.
That we condemn the attempt of the Chattisgarh police to intimidate Ajay TG and keep him in a state of fear and silence.
That our campaign will continue until the case against Ajay TG is formally closed and that Ajay TG's films will continue to be screened all across the country, especially his film 'Anjam ' which is about the life , work and arrest of Dr. Binayak Sen.
