Amar Singh gets bail on medical grounds

Monday October 24, 2011 02:55:25 PM, IANS

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Monday granted regular bail on medical grounds to ailing Rajya Sabha member and former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, arrested in the 2008 cash-for-votes scandal in parliament.

Justice Suresh Kait granted bail to Amar Singh keeping in mind the All India Institute of Medical sciences (AIIMS) medical report on his critical health condition.

The court has asked Amar Singh to furnish surety and personal bonds of Rs.50 lakh each.

He has been asked to submit his passport to the court and not to try to influence any of the witnesses in the case.

Regular bail entitles Amar Singh to stay out of jail throughout the hearing of the case in court.

The ruling came after the Delhi Police submitted before the court the AIIMS report which says the MP's condition was critical and he needed constant monitoring.

The 55-year-old continues to be treated at the AIIMS where he was admitted Sep 12. He was held Sep 6 for his alleged involvement in an attempt to bribe MPs ahead of the July 2008 parliament trust vote.

He was chargesheeted under section 12 of the Prevention of Corruption Act and section 120 B (Conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code.

On July 22, 2008, Bharatiya Janata Party MPs Faggan Singh Kulaste, Mahavir Bhagora and Ashok Argal waved wads of currency notes in the Lok Sabha ahead of a trust vote, alleging they were given the money to vote in favour of the Manmohan Singh government.
