RS MP Amar Singh granted interim bail till Sept 19

New Delhi: Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh was today granted interim bail till September 19 on health grounds by a Delhi court in the 2008 cash-for-vote scam.

The 55-year-old former Samajwadi Party leader was granted interim bail by Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal. Singh was in judicial custody for nine days.

He was arrested on September 6 after he appeared in court in response to its summons for his alleged role in the scam.

Singh, who had undergone a kidney transplant, was subsequently sent to AIIMS on September 12 following complaints of vomiting and diarrhoea.

The court granted him bail on furnishing a personal bond of Rs 2 lakh and a surety of the same amount.

"Amar Singh granted interim bail till September 19," the judge said while directing Singh to submit his passport to the court and not to leave Delhi without its permission.

The court is slated to hear Singh`s regular bail plea on September 19.
