In a new state of affairs the Supreme Court on Monday granted three-weeks interim bail to former police officer Pradeep Sharma. He was arrested in connection with the Antilia bomb scare case and the killing of businessman Mansukh Hiran.
A vacation bench headed by Justice Aniruddha Bose who granted the 3-weeks interim bail to the former Police Officer posted the matter for hearing on June 26 this year but, asked Sharma to furnish a medical report indicating the status of the treatment of his wife.
However, the top court also stated that Pradeep Sharma’s interim bail is subject to conditions imposed by the trial court.
Reportedly, the counsel appearing for Sharma had sought interim bail on humanitarian grounds and said the wife of the petitioner has developed serious complications after a surgery.
He had claimed the condition of Sharma’s wife was deteriorating with each passing day, and he was seeking interim bail for the limited purpose of taking care of her.
Earlier on May 18, the top court had issued notice on Sharma’s plea challenging an order of the Bombay High Court which had refused to grant him bail.
