Amar Singh to fly to Singapore for treatment

amar-singhNew Delhi: The Delhi, Tiz Hazari court allowed Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh, to go to Singapore for treatment as he is suffering from kidney ailments. Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal allowed Mr. Singh to go to Singapore from November 8, 2011 to November 30, 2011. Court has asked him to furnish a surety bond of Rs 5 lakh.

Mr. Singh had moved court early this week for permission to go abroad. In his application, the former Samajwadi Party leader had said he has been undergoing treatment at Singapore’s Mount Elizabeth Hospital following his kidney transplant and he needs to go there for regular check-up.

Mr. Singh, who was undergoing treatment under judicial custody at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), was granted bail by the Delhi High Court on October 24 on “humanitarian grounds” in view of his “critical” condition.

The High Court, while granting bail to Mr. Singh, had said that he would not leave the country without prior permission of the lower court. Mr. Singh was admitted to the AIIMS on September 12 after his health condition deteriorated in Tihar Jail following his arrest in the case on September 6. He was discharged from AIIMS on October 30.
