RJD MP Amarendra Dhari Singh denied bail in fertilizer subsidy scam; Court says the possibility of witnesses tampering

New Delhi: The bail application of Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Amarendra Dhari Singh, who was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on June 2 on the accusations of money laundering, in connection, with an alleged fertilizer subsidy scam, was dismissed by a Special Court in Delhi on Monday.

Special CBI Judge Vikas Dhull, while deciding the bail on Wednesday, said, "possibility of tampering with the witnesses, the accused being an influential person and the investigation being at an initial stage."
 
The Court also noted, "Investigation is at the stage of collection of evidence identifying proceeds of crime and finding of the trail of remaining ill-gotten money, which with money laundering, is generally routed through a complex web of companies..."
 
Advocate Nitesh Rana, Special Public Prosecutor, and Special counsel Zoheb Hossain appeared for the Enforcement Directorate, and Senior Advocate Siddharth Aggarwal and Advocate Madhav Khurana appeared for Amarendra Dhari Singh in the matter.
 
Senior Advocate Siddharth Aggarwal for the accused argued that because the accused is a sick person who has been receiving treatment for lymphatic cancer since 2002 and has a heart condition, he does not deserve to remain incarcerated because it will impair his health.
 
It was prayed that as per provision of Section 45 of PMLA, a case for grant of bail is made out on the grounds of the accused being sick and infirm.
 
It was further submitted that there is no chance of the accused fleeing from this country if released on bail as he has got deep roots in society. It was submitted that the accused is a sitting Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament, his lawyer submitted.
