Delhi High court asks status report on Dheeraj Wadhawan bail

The Delhi High Court has requested a status update regarding the bail application of Dheeraj Wadhawan, who is seeking bail on medical grounds. This request comes after his bail plea was rejected by the trial court. Justice Vikas Mahajan, presiding over the vacation bench, directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to submit a status report on the plea and scheduled the next hearing for June 10. Senior advocate Amit Desai appeared via video conferencing, while senior advocate Siddharth Agrawal appeared in person. Anupam S Sharma represented the CBI and opposed the bail request. Wadhawan withdrew his previous bail plea from the Delhi High Court on May 17. He is implicated in a CBI case concerning the DHFL multi-million bank loan fraud case.

Following the trial court's denial of bail, Wadhawan turned to the High Court for recourse. However, his bail plea has been dismissed twice by the trial court. On May 10, Special Judge A K Sarpal of the Rouse Avenue court rejected his bail application on grounds of maintainability, directing the CBI to arrest him after May 11 as per the Supreme Court's directive issued on January 24. Despite his arrest, his request for interim or regular bail on medical grounds was also dismissed by the court.

Previously, the Bombay High Court had granted Wadhawan protection until May 11 due to medical reasons. He underwent surgery and received treatment at home before his arrest. The Supreme Court, on January 24, overturned a Delhi High Court order granting statutory bail to Wadhawan and his brother Kapil Wadhawan in connection with the bank loan scam case, revoking their bail. The apex court emphasised that the High Court and trial court erred in granting default bail to the brothers, stressing that the chargesheet had been filed within the stipulated time frame. The trial court had granted them bail on the grounds of an incomplete chargesheet filed by the CBI. They were subsequently arrested on July 19, 2023, based on a complaint from the Union Bank of India. (Source: ET)
