New Delhi, Oct 1 (IANS) A Delhi court on Tuesday sent corporate lobbyist Deepak Talwar to judicial custody till October 16 in the CBI case relating to an illicit aviation deal.
Special CBI Judge Anil Kumar Sisodia also reserved the bail application for October 3.
The cognisance of the charge sheet could not take place as Talwar’s counsel Tanveer Ahmad Mir sought more time to examine the documents. The decision on the same would also be taken on October 16.
Arguing on the application seeking default bail, Mir said, “My application is purely on 167(2), I am pressing no other ground.”
Mir stated that if the order of cognisance is not passed on the 60th day, automatically, default bail under 167 (2) CrPC would come in.
Mir also told the court that his client is willing to furnish a bail bond.
However, CBI counsel A K Rao opposed the grounds pressed by Talwar’s counsel. He cited a Supreme Court judgment in support of his arguments.
The charge sheet filed by the agency on September 23, names Deepak Talwar, Yasmeen Kapoor, Maya B Puri and firms M/S Stone Travel Private Limited, M/S Cedar Travels, Deepak Talwar & Associates, Asia Field Limited.
The charge sheet was filed under section 8 of the Prevention of Corruption Act of 1988.
Talwar was deported from Dubai in January 2019. He is accused of using his clout to influence aviation policy during the UPA II era.
