The Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed bail to BJP Yuva Morcha leader Priyanka Sharma, who was arrested and sent to two-week judicial custody for sharing a morphed image of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Facebook

 
Priyanka Sharma shared on Facebook a photo in which Mamata Banerjee’s face has been photoshopped on to actor Priyanka Chopra’s picture from the MET Gala event.
