Amar Singh granted bail

New Delhi: Amar Singh was granted interim bail by the Delhi Court after  medical records were submitted by Tihar jail and AIIMs today. The interim bail has been granted till September 19, 2011. The bail was granted on a personal bond of 2 lakh rupees. The court has also asked the Samajwadi Party MP to submit his passport before court.

Delhi court was to hear Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh’s bail petition in the cash-for-votes scam. Singh, who is suffering from kidney-related problems, had been admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences following a rise in creatinine level in his body. However Tihar jail authorities have maintained that his health is normal. AIIMS authorities had shifted him to a special ward yesterday as they claimed that his medical condition had become worse.

Singh, in judicial custody, was admitted in AIIMS on September 12 following complications related to post-renal transplant, urinary tract infection, diarrhoea, diabetes, dehydration, hypothyroid and hypertension. Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh, arrested for his alleged role in the 2008 cash-for-vote scam, needs psychiatry consultation for his “anxiety and restlessness”, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) told a Delhi court today in its medical report submitted before Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal.

The premier health institute has told the court that Singh, who had undergone a kidney transplant in 2009, was suffering from multiple health problems and was prone to infections. It said “the S Creatinine is fluctuating between 1.3-1.6 mg/dl (normal for him is 0.8-0.9 mg/dl). He (Amar Singh) has persistent tachycardia (heart rate exceeding normal range). “He continues to have vomiting and diarrhoea for which the gastroenterologist has suggested automatic function tests and endoscopy with mucosal biopsy,” the report said.  AIIMS said in its report that any kidney transplant patient, showing more than 30 per cent acute rise in S Creatinine level, needs hospitalisation.
