The Supreme Court on Monday granted interim bail to former CMD of Amrapali Group of Companies, Anil Kumar Sharma, on medical grounds.
The Apex Court granted interim bail to Sharma for four weeks, after Advocate Manoj Singh, appearing for Sharma, said that he was suffering from infection and his health condition was deteriorating.
In its last hearing on August 4, a Bench comprising Justice U.U. Lalit and Justice Bela M. Trivedi had directed Additional Solicitor General Aishwarya Bhati to file a status report by August 6.
The bench had also issued notices to the probe agencies on the plea.
The top court of the country had, on June 9, allowed Sharma to get his surgery for hernia conducted at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), within a week.
However, the Apex Court refused to grant him bail for four weeks, as sought by his Counsel, stating that the allegations against Sharma were grave.
Sharma is lodged in Mandoli prison in Delhi.
The top court had refused to transfer and club over 80 criminal cases lodged by the home buyers against the directors and other officials of Amrapali group firms on March 21, saying it would make the life difficult for a trial judge.
The Counsel for one of the jailed officials of the real estate group had contended that the Supreme Court can take a decision, similar to coal scam cases, leading to trial in 85 criminal matters, which were of similar nature, being transferred to one court from seven different courts in the national capital.
Following a number of homebuyers knocking on its doors, alleging malpractices and non-delivery of homes or flats by the real estate company, the Supreme Court started monitoring the cases related to the Amrapali group.
