Delhi Court Serves Bailable Warrant on Amar Singh

A court in Delhi has issued a bailable warrant against SP general secretary Amar Singh after he failed to appear before it to depose in a two-year-old cheating case instituted by him.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaveri Baweja, taking a strong notice of his non-appearance, issued a warrant against Singh with a bail amount of Rs 10,000 for December 22. She noted that Singh had earlier also on October 3 and July 13 failed to appear before the court for various reasons.

The bail was ordered following submission by additional public prosecutor Naveen Kumar that Singh was a complainant in the case and repeatedly failed to appear for recordings of his statement.

“He has made a mockery of criminal justice system by not appearing in the court due to one or the other reasons. Coercive action must be taken against him,” Kumar submitted.

Besides, counsel for defence today deposited cost of Rs 5,000 which was levied on him on February 20 for his non-appearance.

Earlier, Singh was granted exemptions from personal appearance by the court due to his poor health.

In this regard, the medical documents were submitted in the court today, which, however, bore the date of September 25, a month prior to the date of hearing.
