Delhi HC grants bail to Chautala to undergo pacemaker implant

New Delhi, May 21, 2013, (PTI) :

Former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala was today granted interim bail for six weeks by the Delhi High Court for undergoing pacemaker implant surgery at a hospital here.

"In view of the facts and circumstances of the case and considering the medical report of the appellant/applicant, the applicant's sentence shall be suspended for a period of six weeks," Justice Siddharth Mridul said while granting the interim bail.

78-year-old Chautala, chief of Indian National Lok Dal (INLD), along with 54 others, is serving jail term in the 2000 teachers' recruitment scam.


The court asked Chautala to furnish a personal bond of Rs five lakh along with two sureties of like amount before the trial court as a pre-condition for his release on bail.

It also asked the former Haryana Chief Minister to surrender his passport with the trial court, besides asking him not to leave the National Capital Region without prior permission of the court.

It also asked Chautala to get himself admitted at Medanta Medicity within 24 hours of his release on bail for undergoing the surgery.

The high court, however, gave liberty to CBI to seek cancellation of his bail if any condition imposed is violated by Chautala.

"It goes without saying that CBI will have the liberty to apply for cancellation of bail if any condition is being violated by the appellant/applicant," Justice Mridul said.

The court, however, disallowed the submission of CBI that Chautala be restrained from addressing any press conference during the period of bail.

"How can this court curtail the fundamental right of a citizen. I don't wish to comment on it. If you persist with it (arguments), then it seems it is not coming from CBI," the court observed during the hearing without elaborating.
