The interim bail of Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh, arrested for his alleged involvement in the 2008 cash-for-vote scam, was extended today till September 27 by a Delhi court.
While extending Singh's interim bail which was to expire today, special judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal also asked BJP leader L K Advani's former aide Sudheendra Kulkarni, a co-accused in the case, to appear before it on September 27 without fail.
While extending time for Kulkarni, who failed to attend the court today despite his September 6 undertaking to the court, the court said no further extension would be granted to him.
"More time is granted (to Kulkarni) but no time will be granted after September 27," the judge said. The court, which also heard part of arguments on Singh's regular bail plea by senior counsel Ram Jethhmalani, slated September 27 for its further hearing.
The judge extended Singh's interim bail saying the terms and conditions of the bail would remain same as those stipulated on September 15 at the time of the grant of interim bail. The court had granted him interim bail on a personal bond of Rs 2 lakh with one surety of the same amount and also directed him to submit his passport to it and not to leave Delhi without its permission.
