Further, Andayi noted, the money deposited with the court will be used to settle Felix Orinda aka Dj Evolve’s hospital bill.

Earlier, the victim’s family had opposed Babu’s release on bail for fear of his life and the legislator’s interference with witnesses.

“Their plea to the court is that if the same is granted, other protective measures should be instituted to ensure the security of the victim, family and also to safeguard against witness interference,”the report reads in part.
