The Delhi High Court has upheld a trial court order permitting MoserBaer founder Deepak Puri to travel abroad to the United States for treatment.
The order was passed on an application moved by the CBI challenging the trial court order, saying there was no emergent medical condition requiring Puri to travel to the US for his treatment.
“I find no infirmity in the impugned order dated 23.12.2020 passed by the Ld. Special Judge, the same is, therefore, upheld. Consequently, the present petition is dismissed and disposed of accordingly,” said the single-judge bench of Justice Rajnish Bhatnagar while turning down the petition.
The bench had earlier reserved its order on January 27 and it was uploaded on Saturday.
The trial court had passed an order on December 23, 2020, allowing Deepak Puri, who is an accused in bank fraud, and his wife Nita (also named in the FIR) to go abroad.
