Ranchi: Senior BJP leader and former union minister Yashwant Sinha walked out of a Jharkhand jail Thursday, a day after he was granted bail.

More than 55 party workers who were in jail with him since June 3 also walked free after they were released from the Hazaribagh central jail.

Sinha was accorded a warm welcome by BJP workers.

Bharatiya Janata Party leader L.K. Advani met Sinha in jail Tuesday and did not rule out the possibility of a larger role for him in the state. Advani had also appealed to him to seek bail and lead the agitation in the state.

Sinha was arrested June 2 while he was leading a demonstration against the state's poor power scenario and had locked up officials of the electricity board.

He was presented before the court June 3 where he refused to seek bail and was sent to judicial custody.

On Monday, Sinha's judicial custody was extended till June 28.
