A Delhi Court on Saturday granted bail to former Union Health minister Anbumani Ramadoss and eight others, accused in a graft case for allegedly abusing their official position in allowing a medical college in Indore to take admissions.

Noting that the accused cooperated with the probe agency, Special Judge Talwant Singh allowed their bail plea. He asked the accused to furnish personal and surety bond of `1 lakh each.

Anbumani Ramadoss, who was the Union Health Minister from May 2004 to April 2009 in UPA-I government, was charged under section 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC along with offences under the Prevention of Corruption Act.

The accused sought bail on grounds that they had cooperated with the probe agency and that all the evidence in the case was documentary and had already been filed. The bail applications were strongly opposed by the CBI, which stated that the accused were senior officials and could influence the witnesses, if set on bail.
