A Delhi court on Friday allowed Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh,accused in the 2008 cash-for-votes scam,to travel to Singapore for treatment of his kidney ailment.
Special Judge Sangita Dhingra Sehgal allowed Singh to travel from November 8 to November 30 on the condition that he should furnish a surety bond of Rs 5 lakh.
Singh had moved the court earlier this week for permission to go abroad,saying he needed to go for regular check-ups to Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore,where he had his kidney transplant in 2009.
Singh was granted bail by the Delhi High Court on October 24 in view of his health condition. However,the court had specified that he could not leave the country without first getting permission from the trial court.
