Jodhpur: The Rajasthan High Court on Thursday
granted bail to a manager of company, that allegedly
manufactured the contaminated IV fluids blamed for the 17
maternal deaths in two government-run hospitals here.

Bench of Justice Kailash Chandra Joshi today granted bail
to Sajay Shah, production manager of Parenteral Surgicals Ltd.

Shah was arrested on February 28 following a complaint by
the Superintendent of Umaid Hospital and was in Jodhpur
central jail since then.

Joshi had rejected the first bail application on May 23
on the ground of pending police investigation.

This was the second bail application of Shah in the court
of justice Kailash Chandra Joshi, who had rejected the first
bail plea on May 23 on the ground of pending police
investigation.

MS Singhvi, counsel of the petitioner today argued in
the court that since the police investigation is complete now
and chargesheet has also been filed, there is no point in
rejecting the bail.

"There is no proof that which bottle was administered to
which women," the counsel also argued.

The hospital had registered complaint on February 23
against the Parenteral Surgicals Ltd. Indore for having
supplied the contaminated fluid to the hospitals after the
preliminary confirmation of the contamination in the IV Fluid.
