New Delhi, Nov 28 (CMC): Delhi High Court, Monday, granted bail to former telecom minister Sukh Ram, presently lodged in Tihar jail for taking Rs 3 lakh as bribe to award a lucrative contract to a private firm in 1996. 
Sukhram on Nov 23 applied for bail challenging his conviction and five-year jail term.
A trial court had convicted 84-year-old former telecom minister Sukh Ram for misusing his official position when he was in the PV Narasimha Rao cabinet in 1996. 
Sukh Ram was alleged to have been giving undue favour to a cable supply company in 1996. 
The CBI, in its charge sheet filed in 1998, had accused Sukh Ram and another person of allegedly showing undue favour in supply of excess quantity of cable and acceptance of Rs 3 lakh. 
In 2009, Sukh Ram was held guilty of possessing disproportionate assets worth Rs.4.25 crore. 
In 2002, he was awarded a three-year jail term under the Prevention of Corruption Act in an equipment supply case for causing a loss of Rs.1.66 crore to the state exchequer. He had allegedly caused undue benefits to Rama Rao, managing director of Hyderabad-based Advance Radio Masts.
