The Delhi High Court on Friday granted one week interim bail to Sanjeev Nanda, undergoing five years jail term in the BMW hit-and-run case, so that he could meet his ailing grandfather.

Justice Kailash Gambhir granted one week interim bail to Nanda so that he could meet his 90-year-old grandfather former Naval Chief S M Nanda, who had a distinguished career in the Navy and played a significant role in 1971 Indo-Pak war.

“Petitioner (Sanjeev Nanda) sentence would remain suspended for a week from the day of his release,” the court added.

Nanda, son of arms dealer Suresh Nanda, was sentenced to five-year jail term on September 5 last year for killing six persons, including three policemen, by his BMW car in the wee hours of January 10, 1999 at Lodhi Colony in New Delhi.

The Court had earlier, on December 19, granted three-week interim bail to Nanda.
