New Delhi, Dec 1: A Delhi court on Wednesday, Nov 30 asked the Delhi police to conduct a medical health test of "serial slapper" Harvinder Singh, who slapped Sharad Pawar, Agriculture Minister on Nov 24 and assaulted former Telecom Minister, Sukhram earlier.

Jasjeet Kaur, Metropolitan magistrate directed that Harvinder Singh undergo a medical test at the Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences (IHBAS) after Singh's lawyer, Kapil Dhaka pleaded bail for his client on the grounds that he was suffering from mental illness since 2004.

He further said that Singh Singh should be granted bail as the investigation was over and he shouldn't be kept in jail.

The public prosecutor, however, opposed his bail claiming that he was a threat to the society and did not show any signs of regret for his actions.

Singh attacked Pawar like a bolt out of the blue when he came for a function at the Parliament Street. He slapped Pawar and shouted slogans calling him corrupt.

An FIR was lodged against him by the Delhi Police under Sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 309 (attempt to commit suicide), 506 (threatening someone of dire consequences) and 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servants from discharge of his duty) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Harvinder Singh, in a similar manner, had also created a ruckus outside the Rohini Court on Nov 19 when he attacked Sukh Ram, Telecom Minister, but was let off without any case charged against him.
