Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh would be arrested again as a Delhi court on Wednesday dismissed his regular as well as interim bail pleas in the 2008 cash-for-vote scam.

Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal relied on the medical reports to reject both the bail applications of the former Samajwadi Party leader who is undergoing treatment for his kidney ailments at the AIIMS.

“The medical reports of the accused were sought from the Director of the AIIMS from time to time. As per the report dated September 26, the accused is stable but requires monitoring. I leave it to the good judgement of the specialists and super specialists at the AIIMS to decide the period for which the accused is to be kept under observation”.

“The interim bail comes to an end today. The regular bail has been declined, vide separate detailed order,” the court said.

“Let the bail bond submitted at the time of grant of interim bail be cancelled and documents be returned to the accused (Singh),” it said.

Mr. Singh was arrested on September 6 after he appeared before the court in response to the court summons to him for his alleged involvement in 2008 cash-for-vote scam.

He, however, had to be rushed to the AIIMS from Tihar jail after a bout of vomiting and diarrhoea on September 12 evening and later the court granted him interim bail on September 15.
