The Supreme Court on Friday refused to grant interim bail to former Delhi Congress leader Sajjan Kumar, who is serving a life sentence in a case relating to the 1984 anti-Sikh riots.
Kumar has been in jail since December 31, 2018, when he surrendered after being convicted and awarded life imprisonment by the Delhi High Court.
“We will hear it in May during summer vacation,” a Bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde said.
On behalf of Kumar, senior advocate Vikas Singh said he had lost 13 kgs and needed to be attended by a private doctor. Singh handed over a sealed medical report on Kumar’s health to the court.
The Bench said it would consider the report when Kumar’s bail plea is taken up for hearing.
