Cash-for-vote: Amar Singh moves HC for bail
New Delhi: Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh, an accused in the 2008 cash-for-vote case, Monday moved the Delhi High Court seeking bail.
Singh moved the high court after his interim and regular
bail pleas were rejected on September 28 by a Delhi court
which had said his role was "major" in the entire episode
aimed at "disgracing" parliamentary democracy.
In its order, the lower court had said the incident
showed that Singh and other political functionaries, including
arrested BJP leaders in the case, "stooped to a level beyond
imagination" aimed at "subverting" the functioning of
Singh, who is currently undergoing treatment at AIIMS,
has been seeking bail on medical grounds while relying on his
medical report, according to which his health condition was
showing "overall improvement" but his renal condition was
assessed prone to infection and needed constant monitoring.
Singh was arrested on September 6 after he appeared
before the court in response to summons for his alleged
involvement in the cash-for-vote scam.
He, however, had to be rushed to the AIIMS from Tihar
Jail on September 12 evening after a bout of vomiting and
diarrhoea and was later granted interim bail on September 15.
