Jessica's real culprits are those who didn't speak

A Delhi court on Monday granted bail to Chandigarh-based Dr J S Bedi accused of giving false medical certificates to Vikas Gill, an accused in the Jessica Lal murder case.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate released Bedi on bail on the condition of furnishing a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh and two sureties of like amount.

The court also directed him to report to the investigating officer on the first Monday of each month.

Bedi had surrendered before the court on September 5, which sent him to three days' police remand.

He was produced in the additional chief metropolitan magistrate's court after the expiry of his police custody and sent to judicial custody till September 22.

Bedi, against whom a non-bailable arrest warrant was issued on August 25, had been absconding and even moved an anticipatory bail application before the Delhi high court, which he withdrew before surrendering.

He has been accused of giving false medical certificates to Gill that he was suffering from spinal problems to facilitate his personal exemption during the trial of the case.
