The scene at Bengaluru jail was similar to that of Tamil Nadu where supporters of VK Sasikala gave a rousing welcome after her release. 

Two days ago, his Corporator friend AR Zakir was also released on bail and he too was arrested allegedly for supporting Raj in carrying out the Bengaluru violence. 
As per reports, Raj and his corporate friend AR Zakir cannot go out of City, influence witnesses and cooperate with investigation officers as per the bail condition. 

Earlier MLA Akhanda Srinivas Murthy told media that Sampath Raj has been granted bail, he may take revenge and anticipated attack. So he needs to seek protection, he also asked the party leaders to place Raj under suspension.
