The court also asked Jarwal to furnish a personal bond of Rs50,000 and two sureties of like amount
New Delhi: Delhi High Court on Friday granted bail to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Prakash Jarwal, arrested for allegedly assaulting Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash last month.
The court observed that during the course of arguments on the bail plea, a trust deficit between the members of legislative assembly and the bureaucrats was evident.
“To see that no unforeseen incident occurs in future and also to maintain transparency, the Government of NCT of Delhi would be well advised to get the meetings inter-se the legislators and the bureaucrats’ videographer,” Justice Mukta Gupta said while granting bail to Jarwal.
The court also asked Jarwal to furnish a personal bond of Rs50,000 and two sureties of the like amount.
The court, however, imposed the condition that if Jarwal, himself or through someone else, intimidates or harasses or obstructs the lawful activity of the complainant, the police would be entitled to seek cancellation of the bail.
The court directed him not to tamper with the evidence or intimidate or approach any of the witnesses.
