They are; David Ayienda Mochogu, Duncan Luvuka, Vincent Owuor, Boniface Mutua, Alexander Mutuku and Francis Muriuki.
Milimani Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi ordered that the six who pulled off the Sh72 million heist be released on an obligee surety bond.
They were also ordered to deposit their travel documents with the court.
On Monday their counsel Cliff Ombeta told the court that his clients were tortured and beaten while in police custody and were in dire need of medical attention.
One of the suspects, Owuor said his finger was pierced with a needle, pepper forced into his system and was threatened with simulated drowning — to force him to admit he was a police officer. He is not an officer.
Another man, police Corporal Duncan Kaveshi, displayed head and arm injuries inflicted by what he said was a police beating.

They were dumped in Thogoto Forest, Kiambu county. They belonged to Stanbic, KCB and Barclays banks.
