Satyendar Jain: ‘Supreme’ relief to Satyendar Jain, interim bail with conditions

Former Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain has been granted interim bail by the Supreme Court for 6 weeks. This decision has been taken in view of Jain’s poor health condition. Satyendra Jain’s lawyer Abhishek Manu Singhvi had demanded an early hearing from the court, citing his ill health. The vacation bench of Supreme Court Justice JK Maheshwari and Justice Sanjay Karol has given this decision. Along with this, the court has also put some conditions during this period. He said that Satyendar Jain will not be allowed to go out of Delhi.

Satyendar Jain, lodged in Tihar Jail, had fallen in jail on Thursday due to dizziness. After this he was admitted to the hospital and kept on oxygen support. He was first admitted to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital (DDU) and later shifted to Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Hospital (LNJP) due to breathing problem.

ED said – cannot trust the medical report

Opposing the bail of Satyendar Jain, the ED told the Supreme Court that it cannot rely on the medical report of LNJP. Also, he has demanded that Satyendar Jain should be examined by a panel of doctors from AIIMS so that the exact condition can be revealed.
