Cash-for-vote scam: Amar Singh moves fresh interim bail plea

Arguing his own case before Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal this afternoon, Singh told the court that he was suffering from kidney ailment and gave the assurance that he would not flee or tamper with evidence if enlarged on bail.

"I am really not well. My body needs good care like regular dialysis, blood tests, medication and all that. I am not going to flee and I am not going to tamper with any evidence. I am fully cooperating.

"I have not used my so-called influence on any witness. Principle of law is that a person is not guilty unless it has been proved. Till then please ask anybody, any doctor whether a person who has undergone kidney transplant needs such care or not," Singh submitted. Even as Singh was pleading, the judge said, "All the accused are placed equally."

The former Samajwadi Party general secretary replied that he could not be placed equally with other accused as his case was different because of health grounds.
