“Four other accused in the case are already out on bail.”

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday dismissed the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) plea to set aside the bail granted to businessman Ratul Puri, nephew of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, in a money laundering case connected with the AgustaWestland VVIP chopper scam.

Justice Suresh Kait rejected the ED’s plea, noting four other accused in the case are already out on bail and Mr. Puri had been in custody for over 100 days.

In the present VVIP chopper scam case, Mr. Puri was named as an accused in the sixth charge sheet filed by the ED.

The trial court had noted that the “co-accused having similar or greater role than the role of the present accused have already been enlarged on bail.”
