New Delhi, Dec 15 (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Tuesday granted anticipatory bail to AAP legislator Jarnail Singh, who is accused of assaulting an MCD engineer.
Justice Indermeet Kaur denied Delhi Police’s request for dismissal of Singh’s plea for anticipatory bail.
The court had been extending, since May 6, interim protection from arrest to Singh, who is also accused of tearing up official documents and threatening to frame South Delhi Municipal Corporation junior engineer Athar Mustafa in a corruption case.
A scuffle reportedly took place when Mustafa, with his team and police, tried to bring down an illegal structure in Krishna Park Extension area of west Delhi. The legislator apparently objected to this.
The trial court had rejected Jarnail Singh’s anticipatory bail plea, after which he moved the high court.
