The decision to grant medical bail should not just be made when the person is near death: Delhi High Court

According to a recent ruling by the Delhi High Court, the discretion to grant bail based on medical need cannot be used exclusively when a person is nearing death. [Vijay Agrawal Through Parokar versus Directorate of Enforcement].

According to Justice Dinesh Kumar Sharma, Article 21 of the Constitution guarantees not just the basic right to life, but also the right to live in dignity and in good health. In light of this, the accused should be given the chance to receive appropriate and efficient medical care.

These remarks were made in a court ruling releasing Vijay Agrawal on bail after the Enforcement Directorate charged him with money laundering (ED).
