New Delhi, 1 July
Delhi High Court today sought the CBI’s response on former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala’s plea seeking extension of his interim bail on medical grounds.
Mr Justice Siddharth Mridul issued notice to the CBI and sought its response by 4 July on Mr Chautala’s application for extension of his interim bail.
He said his pacemaker implantation was done on 3 June and the doctor had advised him to come for regular checkups for three months. He was granted interim bail on 21 May and it expires on 4 July. In his application, Mr Chautala said: “He continues to be in a fragile state of health, besides being severely handicapped by various disabilities. He required constant extra care during the three months and constant follow up. He requires a stress free environment.”
