ED moves HC to cancel bail granted to Khaitan

The Enforcement Directorate on Tuesday moved the Delhi High Court seeking cancellation of bail granted by a trial court to AgustaWestland chopper scam accused Gautam Khaitan in a separate black money and laundering case.

Enforcement Directorate has challenged the trial court’s April 16 order granting the relief to Mr. Khaitan, saying that in view of his position in society and the gravity of the offence, there was an apprehension of witnesses being tampered with, won over or intimidated by his influence.

The agency, in its plea filed through advocate D.P. Singh, has also contended that the investigation was at a very crucial stage as the role of his alleged accomplices and aides was being examined in the money laundering case.
