New Delhi: In a relief to Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh, the Delhi high court on Monday granted bail to him in the 2008 cash-for-vote case but restrained him from leaving the country without its permission.
While granting bail to 55-year-old Singh, who was undergoing treatment at AIIMS under judicial custody, the court asked him to furnish a personal bond of Rs50 lakh and two sureties of like amount.

Justice Suresh Kait also asked Singh to surrender his passport before the trial court which is hearing the cash-for-vote case.
The court passed the order on an appeal filed by Singh challenging the lower court’s order rejecting his bail plea.
The lower court had granted interim bail to Singh on 15 September on medical grounds, which continued till 28 September when the judge ordered his re-arrest while dismissing his regular and interim bail pleas on the ground that he was “stable”.
Singh has been booked under various provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act and the Indian Penal Code in the cash-for-vote case.
