As the 49-year-old Lok Sabha MP stepped out of Gate no.4 of the Tihar jail, he was received by DMK MP from Kanyakumari J Halen Davidson.

Dressed in his trademark white shirt and 'dhoti', Raja came out of Gate No 4 even as many of his supporters waiving DMK flags and DMK Parliamentary Party leader T R Baalu waited at Gate no. 3 to receive him.

Raja quickly took his seat in a grey Toyota Corola as lensmen jostled with hundreds of DMK supporters to capture the moment.

A few of Raja's supporters managed to shake hands with him while others followed his car in buses and other vehicles. Raja did not speak to journalists.

Earlier in the day after Raja was granted bail, DMK leadership swung into action without losing any time to complete the formalities for securing the bail order from the court after furnishing the bail bond and sureties for his release from jail on Tuesday itself.
