Justice JR Midha passed the order as senior advocate Ramesh Gupta, appearing for Kanda, also assured the Court that his client will not seek interim bail to attend Assembly Sessions.

The Court was hearing the plea filed by police seeking cancellation of bail granted by trial Court to Kanda and his aide Aruna Chaddha.

Kanda has already spent 13 months in custody and got interim bail on September 4 from a Delhi Court, to attend the State Assembly till October 4.

Kanda, who represents Sirsa in the Haryana Assembly, had also moved the city Court for extension of bail which was dismissed and he surrendered after expiry of his bail period.

After the Trial Court granted bail to Kanda, the High Court, while hearing the plea of police, had said it will examine how the Trial Court had allowed Kanda's plea despite its (high court) ruling not to grant bail to any accused to attend an Assembly or Parliament Session.

Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Sidharth Luthra had cited the high court's earlier order, and said it had refused permission to Suresh Kalmadi, facing trial in CWG scam case, in similar circumstances but the trial court had granted interim bail to Kanda, which is against judicial discipline.
