New Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday granted bail
to a man arrested for allegedly making a call to the police
raising a false alarm on the security of Delhi Chief Minister
Sheila Dikshit.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaveri Baweja ordered
release of accused Veer Singh, 25, on furnishing a personal
and surety bond of Rs 20,000 each.

Singh, a resident of Farsh Vihar in the national capital,
was arrested yesterday for making a call to the Police Control
Room on Thursday evening claiming that Dikshit`s life was in
danger.

Singh was produced inside the chamber of the judge where
he was granted bail with the condition that he would be
released with the furnishing of the bonds and in case he
failed to do so, he would be remanded to judicial custody.

Meanwhile, the court allowed a plea by the police to
issue instruction to director CFSL to collect voice sample of
the accused in order to help the investigating agency to match
it with the recorded voice.

According to police, he had made the call to frame up one
Lal Singh to whom he owed Rs 20,000.

A case was registered against him under IPC and
Information Technology Act.
