The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Nation - TIMES NEWS NET­WORK

New Delhi: The Se­ri­ous Fraud In­ves­ti­ga­tion Of­fice (SFIO) has op­posed in the Delhi high court the bail plea of Bhushan Steel’s for­mer chair­man Brij Bhushan Sin­gal and his daugh­ter-in-law, sum­moned as ac­cused in a fraud case.

SFIO has ar­gued they should ap­pear be­fore a trial court for seek­ing bail.

Brij Bhushan Sin­gal and his son Neeraj are ac­cused of si­phon­ing off Bhushan Steel Ltd funds and face probe.

The agency op­posed the an­tic­i­pa­tory bail pleas of Sin­gal and his daugh­ter-in-law in HC and ar­gued that ap­pre­hen­sion of the ac­cused that they will be ar­rested when they ap­pear be­fore the trial court, which has sum­moned them for Oc­to­ber 14, is un­founded. Brij Bhushan Sin­gal and his daugh­ter-in-law said they have an ap­pre­hen­sion that the 82year-old and the woman will be ar­rested once they ap­pear be­fore the trial court and they need pro­tec­tion from ar­rest.
