The man who had slapped Union Minister Sharad Pawar at a public function last month was granted bail by a Delhi court on Monday.
District Judge HS Sharma granted bail to Arvinder Singh while directing him not to indulge in any violent activity in future. Singh was granted bail on a personal bond of Rs 10,000.
While pleading for bail, Singh had told the court that he had suffered a bout of mental disorder minutes before the incident on November 24. Singh said that he had been suffering from mental disorder and undergoing regular treatment since 2004. His counsel had contended his client had been falsely implicated in the “petty case” of slapping due to political pressure.
