Delhi HC will hear ED's request challenging Robert Vadra's bail on November 25
NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday suspended the hearing on the petition (ED) that seeks to annul on November 25.
Judge Chander Shekhar is listening to ED's request and the final arguments are scheduled for November 25.
In September, the Delhi High Court had published on November 5 as the date for the hearing on the matter after hearing the arguments of DP defender DP Singh.
Singh stated that the trial court had not considered certain facts and described Vadra as evasive and non-cooperative and had a chain of money that is directly linked to him, demanding custody on behalf of the investigating agency.
Vadra's lawyer denied the accusations imposed on his client and declared that the employer had voluntarily joined the investigation process.
The HC of Delhi is listening to ED's request challenging the court order he had granted and his close assistant Manoj Arora in an alleged money laundering case.
On April 1, the trial court had granted an advance bond to Vadra and Arora while ordering them to provide a personal bond of Rs 5 lakh each and a guarantee of the same amount.
In the response presented by Vadra in response to the ED's request, he had denied all the accusations made by ED and stated that the investigating agency has no material to support the accusations made against him.
In response to allegations of the risk of leakage, Vadra had stated that he voluntarily returned to India from abroad by reading the media reports that ED was investigating, which made it clear that he had no intention of fleeing the country. and he was determined to stay in India. and delete the name.
Vadra alleged that the agency's sole purpose is to cause prejudices in the mind of the court and the public against it.
Earlier, ED had approached the Delhi HC and stated that "The respondent (Vadra) is likely to tamper with evidence and influence witnesses in the case. The special judge (trial court) has failed to appreciate that the respondent is a highly influential person. If he is granted blanket protection of bail, there is all likelihood that the respondent shall tamper with evidence."
The case relates to alleged money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property worth 1.9 million pounds. The ED contended that the anticipatory bail to Vadra and Arora "interferes" in the investigation into the case.
