Amar Singh
New Delhi, Sept 26: Cash for votes accused MP Amar Singh, who is currently undergoing treatment at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) could be discharged in three days, said doctors on Sept 25.

“He has shown signs of improvement in the last two days. His creatinine levels (indicators for kidney functioning) are down to 1.45 mg/dl. Considering his medical condition, he may be relieved in 3 days," said a senior doctor at AIIMS.

"The main problem was due to urinary tract infection and diabetes. Being a transplant patient, these factors added to his worsened condition," said another doctor.

Medical reports that were submitted to High Court reported that Amar Singh was suffering from diabetes, had an intestinal surgery in 2001 and had a renal transplant in Sept 2009.

Amar, who was arrested in connection with the cash-for-votes scam was granted interim bail till Sept 27 on health grounds.

The 55-year-old was arrested on Sept 6 along with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MPs, Mahavir Singh Bhagora and Faggan Singh Kulaste over their alleged involvement in bribing MPs ahead of parliament trust vote in Jul 2008.
