SC dismisses Wadhawans’ bail plea in ED case
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court Friday dismissed the anticipatory bail pleas of DHFL promoters Dheeraj Wadhawan and Kapil Wadhawan in a money laundering case of YES Bank being probed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
The Wadhawans, now arrested, have challenged the Bombay high court’s May 12 order rejecting their plea for prearrest bail.
A bench of Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and B R Gavai dismissed a batch of four pleas after senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for the Wadhawans, said that he was not pressing his prayer for relief.
Rohatgi said that though he is not pressing for anticipatory bail there are some remarks made by the high court in its order which were unwarranted. Solicitor general Tushar Mehta, appearing for the ED said that both the accused have been arrested and hence their plea for anticipatory bail becomes infructous.
