New Delhi, Mar 12: The Delhi High Court on Monday granted bail to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Amanatullah Khan in the Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash assault case. Earlier on Friday, the court had granted bail to AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal in the same case with a warning that any such illegal activity in future would lead to cancellation of his bail.
Justice Mukta Gupta made it clear that if Jarwal himself, or through someone else, intimidated, harassed or obstructed the lawful activities of Anshu Prakash, the Delhi Police and the chief secretary would be entitled to seek cancellation of his bail.
The court also asked him not to tamper with evidence or intimidate or approach the witnesses in any manner.
“This FIR being the third FIR against the petitioner (Jarwal) for assault on a public servant, in case the petitioner indulges in any such illegal act in future, the bail granted to him would be liable to be cancelled,” it said.
The high court imposed other general conditions that Jarwal will not leave the country without prior permission of the court and in case of change of his residential address, it shall be intimated to the concerned court through an affidavit.
