New Delhi: The Tihar jail authorities were asked by a Delhi court on Tuesday to explain by tomorrow as to what "necessitated" shifting Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh, arrested for his alleged role in cash-for-vote scam, to AIIMS last evening.

The court was scheduled to pronounce its verdict on Singh's interim bail plea today but it deferred the same and listed the matter for further hearing on September 15.

Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal also ordered the jail authorities and the AIIMS Director to furnish a report on Singh's medical condition by 12 noon tomorrow.

"Let the jail authorities send their report positively at or before 12 pm (noon) on September 14. The jail authorities are also directed to furnish a complete report on the medical condition of the accused (Amar Singh) which necessitated his shifting to the AIIMS on the evening of September 12," the court said.

The court also asked the AIIMS Director to apprise it of the medical condition of former Samajwadi Party General Secretary from the time of his hospitalization there.

"The Director of AIIMS shall also send a report on the medical condition of the accused (Amar Singh) from the time of his admission in AIIMS and his present position positively at or before 12 pm (noon) on September 14.

"Let the application for grant of interim bail be posted for arguments on September 15 at 10 am," the judge said.

The court also asked the AIIMS, where Amar Singh was shifted last night, to submit his "entire medical record" before it.
