cbi: Get promoters Wadhawans back from Lucknow to Mumbai, court tells CBI | India News

MUMBAI: A special court on Thursday directed the CBI to take “immediate urgent” steps to bring back Dewan Housing Finance Corporation promoters Kapil Wadhawan and Dheeraj Wadhawan and restore their custody to Taloja Central Prison, Navi Mumbai. They were taken away “abruptly and directly taken to UP,” special PMLA Judge MG Deshpande said in an “initial order”.
Wadhwans approached the special court and their counsel Amit Desai and Aabad Ponda said they were taken from Taloja prison without the court’s permission or knowledge and sought their return. The court had sought an explanation, too, from the jail superintendent.
The special court under PMLA said the matter will be heard when CBI files its reply and till then passed urgent orders saying the Wadhawans, accused of money laundering in the Yes Bank case, “were taken to Lucknow in UP without intimation to this court or to any other CBI courts where cases against these accused are pending.” The process adopted by the CBI was “prima facie” “against the law” said the court order. The court said “it has to be noted that no request letter with production warrant is received by this court by the court at Lucknow.”
