BHOPAL -- Congress leader Digvijaya Singh was on Saturday granted bail by a local court here in connection with the Madhya Pradesh recruitment scam.
An arrest warrant was issued against the Congress leader after he failed to appear in court for the hearing.
Singh is accused to have a connection in the alleged recruitment scam at the Madhya Pradesh Assembly Secretariat in Bhopal between 1993 and 2003 during his tenure as chief minister.
In February last year, the Jahangirabad police had registered a case against Singh, former Speaker Sriniwas Tiwari and others for alleged forgery, conspiracy, cheating, and misuse of office as well as offences under the Prevention of Corruption Act following a complaint filed by the Assembly Secretariat about irregularities in recruitment between 1993 and 2003.
A total of 24 people are accused in the case.
