JBT scam : High Court asks Tihar Jail authority to take convict to IHBAS for test

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked Tihar Jail authority to take Vidya Dhar, sentenced to 10 year jail-term along with former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala in teacher recruitment scam, to the Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital here on his plea for interim bail on medical grounds.

Justice Siddharth Mridul asked the Tihar jail authority ‘to produce him (Dhar) before the medical authority of Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences (IHBAS) on Thursday’

The court also directed the director of IHBAS to file a report after examining Dhar's mental conditions by 2 July and posted the matter for 3 July.

The court order came on the plea of Dhar, an IAS officer and former officer on special duty to Chautala, seeking interim bail plea on the ground that he has been suffering from Dysthyamia(neurotic depression) and his physical and mental health conditions have deteriorated in jail.
Dhar's counsel argued his client is suffering from hypertension along with other ailments. He said Dhar is also a chronic diabetic and the medical condition of appellant(Dhar) is not well.
