Trivedi originally said he would not accept bail. However, on Wednesday, he agreed to cooperate.
Indian cartoonist Aseem Trivedi, charged with sedition for political images critical of the government, was released on bail early Wednesday.
Trivedi originally said he would not accept bail and demanded the government drop the charges. However, on Wednesday, Trivedi agreed to cooperate.
After his release Trivedi called for the repeal of the sedition law being used against him.
"I will cooperate in court cases," he said. "Section 124 (A) should be removed from the Indian Constitution."
He added, "Although I'm free, the battle will continue. Whenever there is an infringement of legal rights, our fight will continue," Trivedi told reporters.
Trivedi was arrested on Sunday after complaints were brought against him on grounds that his cartoons insulted India.
CNN puts the Trivedi case in a larger, cultural context.
