New Delhi, Nov 30: The Supreme Court today dismissed the bail application of RJD MP from Bihar Rajesh Ranjan Yadav, alias Pappu Yadav, seeking bail in the Ajit Sarkar murder case on medical grounds.

A bench, comprising Justices S B Sinha and H S Bedi, dismissed the bail application in view of the track record of the petitioner saying, ''We are not inclined to release him on bail.'' Earlier, the court had sought reports from AIIMS whether the petitioner could be treated in jail or not.

Today's dismissal order came following an AIIMS report which said the RJD MP could be adequately treated without being released on bail.

Yadav had been complaining of obesity and contended that Tihar jail did not have adequate facilities for his medical treatment.

Hence, he should be released on bail so that he could get treatment from a hospital which had proper facilities.

The apex court had earlier also rejected Yadav's bail application.
