Amar Singh's report by Tihar misleading: Lawyer

Amar Singh's report by Tihar misleading: Lawyer

Amar Singh was admitted to the AIIMS on Monday night after his health deteriorated.

New Delhi: Tihar Jail sent a misleading report on Amar Singh's medical condition, claimed the Rajya Sabha MP's lawyer in the court on Tuesday during the hearing on his bail petition.

"Most newspaper reports suggest his creatinine levels are high. His own doctor has said that his condition is life threatening. The court should ask Tihar authorities to inform the court about his medical condition immediately," Singh's lawyer told Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal in the Tees Hazari Court.

Singh was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on Monday night following a rise in creatinine level in his body, Tihar jail spokesman Sunil Gupta said.

He is a diabetic and also claims to be suffering from a urinary tract infection, these are also the grounds on which he is seeking bail and the matter comes up for hearing later on Tuesday.

The former Samajwadi Party general secretary has been in Tihar Jail since his arrest on September 6 in connection with the 2008 cash-for-vote scam.
