Update: Indian Physician Binayak Sen Released on Bail

The Indian Supreme Court yesterday granted bail to Binayak Sen, MD, a leading health and human rights advocate. Dr. Sen languished in jail for more than two years on bogus charges of supporting a Maoist insurgency in India. The Court granted Dr. Sen bail on a personal bond in a hearing that lasted just one minute and also ordered the state government to provide him the "best possible medical aid." Dr. Sen suffers from coronary artery disease.
