Mumbai: Actor John
Abraham was granted bail by the Bombay High Court at a personal surety of
Rs. 20,000. Earlier during the day, the actor was detained after a court
rejected an appeal against his conviction for injuring two people while
riding a motorcycle in 2006. His lawyers said they would appeal against
this in the Bombay High Court.

Police detained Abraham
immediately after a sessions court rejected his plea aginst the 15-days
simple imprisonment and fine of Rs.15,000 awarded to him by a magistrate's
court in 2010. He was initially taken for a medical examination.

The
sessions court also rejected Abraham's plea for four days time to
surrender.

It was not immediately clear whether the prosecution
would seek enhanced punishment for Abraham.

Bandra additional
chief metropolitan magistrate S. V. Kulkarni had convicted Abraham in 2010
for injuring two youths - Tanmay Majhi (19) and Shyam Kasbe (22) when his
motorcyle collided with their bicycle in Khar in northwest Mumbai in April
2006.

The actor had rushed the two victims to a hospital.
