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.
