Former Samajwadi Party leader and Rajya Sabha MP Amar Singh was discharged from All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on Sunday.


After being discharged, Amar Singh said that he will go to Singapore for treatment. He also said, "I do not want my name to be associated with the Samajwadi Party."


Singh got bail in the cash-for-votes case a day before Diwali.


But the Delhi High Court had restrained Amar Singh from travelling abroad and asked him to deposit his passport with the court. The court also asked Singh to furnish two sureties of Rs 50 lakh each.


He has been suffering from UTI, increase serum creatinine, vitamin B12 deficiency and increased TSH. His medical report by AIIMS had said that he had developed severe abdominal pain and was prone to infection as he had undergone renal transplant.


55-year-old Singh was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) following a rise in creatinine (marker of kidney function) level in his body.


Dr Sanjay Gupta, senior nephrologist with AIIMS, who was attending on Singh said, "He is fit to be discharged. We discharged him today morning."


The Rajya Sabha MP, who was arrested on September 6 in connection with with his alleged role in 2008 cash-for-vote scam, was given bail on humanitarian ground on October 24.


Singh was brought to AIIMS from Tihar Jail on the night of September 12 following complications related to post-renal transplant, diarrhoea, urinary tract infection, diabetes, dehydration and hypothyroid hypertension, Dr Gupta said.


He had undergone a renal transplant in September 2009 and intestinal surgery 10 years ago.


Gupta said, "He is in proper condition. His condition is rather better now. His creatinine level was fluctuating when he was brought to us. Along with that he had other health complications.


"All renal transplant patients are on immunosuppresive medications (to prevent rejection of transplanted organs) which make them prone to infections.As a routine, any renal transplant patient showing more than 30 per cent acute rise in Creatinine needs admission for finding cause and managing the same. That is why he was admitted with us."
