Delhi Court grants bail to BSP leader`s son

Last Updated: Monday, January 11, 2010 - 20:44

New Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday granted
bail to Vivek Singh, son of a BSP leader, who allegedly opened
fire in a south Delhi bar following a verbal duel.

Additional Sessions Judge S K Sarvaria allowed the
bail application of Singh and asked him to furnish a personal
and a surety bond of Rs 30,000 each as pre-condition of his
release.

Senior advocate Ramesh Gupta, appearing for the
accused, submitted the probe in the case was over and
confining Singh in jail would serve no purpose.

Earlier, police, which booked Singh under various
provisions of the IPC and the Arms Act, dealing with attempt
to murder and use of firearm, had not sought his custody after
he surrendered his licensed pistol allegedly used in the
offence.

Singh, son of BSP leader from UP Chandraveer Singh,
was arrested on December 24 for allegedly firing from his
pistol following an altercation with the staff of Mocha
resto-bar in Nehru Place.

The accused had purportedly gone to the bar to recover
a handbag of his sister which was lost the night before when
they were dining there.

He allegedly fled the spot after the firing incident
but surrendered later.
