“Checked Google, medical condition of V Senthil Balaji not serious”: Supreme Court refuses medical bail to TN Minister

This person had a bypass,” Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi argued on Monday before Supreme Court while pressing for the grant of bail to Balaji.

“(It) does not seem to be very serious,” the Court responded.

It can lead to a brain stroke. Please see,” Rohatgi urged.

I had checked on the Google. It says it can be cured …,” Justice Trivedi pointed out, in turn.

“I have placed Google in front of your lordships. Chronic stroke …” Rohatgi said.

However, the Court said it was not inclined to grant bail.

The investigation into the matter is also ongoing, the Court further noted.

The man is sick. He has had bypass,” Rohatgi persisted.

Nowadays, bypass is like appendicitis,” the Court replied.

Rohatgi continued to urge the Court, pointing out that the deciding factor would be whether Balaji is sick.

At this juncture, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta chimed in to say the many others could press for their release on bail if the only factor deciding medical bail was whether a prisoner was sick or not.

70% (of arrested accused persons) would be sick then,” Mehta said.
