Bengaluru: Karnataka High Court has granted conditional bail to Mohammad Mansoor Khan, the prime accused in the multi-crore I Monetary Advisory (IMA) scam considering his health ailments.

Khan’s counsel had sought bail for Khan saying that he has been diagnosed with unstable angina coronary artery disease and 100% blockage and spine degenerative spondylosis and can seek better treatment for his ailments in a hospital of his choice. He had also sumbitted a letter written by the Chief Medical Officer of the Bengaluru Central Prison to the Chief Superintendent of the prison in this regard.

While granting the bail to the accused Justice Sreenivas Harish Kumar contended that the petitioner was urging for his release on bail on health grounds. “The CMO might have stated that the petitioner’s health condition is stable, but it does not mean that the petitioner can continue to manage those ailments being inside the jail. Certainly, his ailments require constant monitoring. The treatment that he may take outside the jail may be of a different standard. It is pertinent to note that the CMO has observed the chronic disease conditions of the petitioner. Therefore, this aspect can certainly be considered for granting bail.”

The court directed Khan to furnish a bond for Rs 5 lakh and two sureties for the like sum. Khan has been directed to make regular appearance before the trial court and not alienate any of his properties till trial concludes and in case a need arises to alienate, he should disclose to the court the purpose which necessitates alienation and obtain the permission of the trial court.
