The condition of Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh, who was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences following a rise in creatinine level in his body late last evening, is stable.

Arrested for his alleged role in the 2008 cash-for-vote scam, Singh, 55, was admitted in the private ward of AIIMS at around 8 PM last night, just a day before the court is to decide on his interim bail, Tihar Jail spokesman Sunil Gupta said. Singh has now been transfered to the  new private ward of the hospital.

Amar Singh is  diabetic and also claims to be suffering from a urinary tract infection. These are also the grounds on which he is seeking bail.

Creatinine is a fairly reliable indicator of a person's kidney functioning."His condition is hemodynamically stable. He had homemade food in the morning. In due course of time he will undergo different tests. He has urine infection," a senior doctor with AIIMS said.

"He will undergo different tests which will include those related to blood, ultrasound and chest X-ray. Dr Sanjay Gupta, additional professor, department of Nephrology is looking into his case as he is a post transplant case. Gastroenterologists and endocrinologists will also be roped in," the doctor said.

Singh was shifted to AIIMS after a panel of doctors at Tihar Jail found his creatinine level high. The former Samajwadi Party General Secretary has been in Tihar Jail since his arrest on September 6 in connection with the cash-for-vote scam.
