Police issued notice on Amar Singh`s bail pleas

The Delhi High Court on Monday issued a notice to Delhi Police while hearing pleas for regular and interim bail of Rajya Sabha member and former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, an accused in the 2008 cash-for-votes scandal.



New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday issued a notice to Delhi Police while hearing pleas for regular and interim bail of Rajya Sabha member and former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, an accused in the 2008 cash-for-votes scandal.

Delhi Police should file the status report in the case within three days, said Justice Ajit Bharihoke.

While hearing Amar Singh`s interim bail plea on health grounds, the court directed the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), where he is being treated for a kidney-related ailment, to submit his medical report.

"The medical report of Amar Singh be called on October 12," Justice Bharihoke said.

After a Delhi court on September 28 rejected Amar Singh`s bail plea, the 55-year-old continues to be treated at the AIIMS where he was admitted on September 12.

Amar Singh was arrested on September 6 for his alleged involvement in an attempt to bribe MPs ahead of the July 2008 Parliament trust vote.

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

Kulaste and Bhagora, who are no longer MPs, have been arrested in the case. Argal is a member of the current Lok Sabha. Delhi Police had got Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar`s permission to act against him. Police will now file a supplementary charge sheet in the court.
