A Delhi special court Thursday granted interim bail to businessman Rajeev Saxena till February 22 on medical grounds, considering the fact that he is suffering from leukaemia.

Saxena has been arrested in connection with the Rs 3,600-crore AgustaWestland money-laundering case.

Special Judge Arvind Kumar asked Saxena to furnish a personal bond of Rs 5 lakh, with two sureties of the like amount. He further imposed stringent conditions on Saxena, including stating that he will not leave Delhi without permission of the court.

Beside restraining the accused from tampering with evidence, the judge also said Saxena shall not contact any witness and shall join the investigation as and when called by the investigating officer in the case.
