The Supreme Court granted bail to Sanjay Singh presently jailed in Tihar Jail. The Supreme Court clarified that bail conditions can be decided by the trial court. Meantime, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) did not oppose granting bail to Sanjay Singh.

The ED arrested Sanjay Singh in October last year. The ED officials raided the official residence on Delhi North Avenue in the morning. After being interrogated for 10 hours, he was arrested under the Money Laundering Act.
