Bombay High Court Extends Interim Bail of Jet Airways Founder Naresh Goyal for Four Weeks in Money Laundering Case

The Bombay High Court on Friday extended the interim bail of Jet Airways founder Naresh Goyal by four weeks on medical grounds. Goyal, who is 75 and battling cancer, was initially granted two months of interim bail by the court on May 6, following his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a money laundering case.

Goyal has recently filed an application seeking an extension of his bail, citing the need for a preliminary laparoscopic surgery scheduled for July 23. His counsel, Aabad Ponda, informed Justice N J Jamadar about the impending surgery and the critical health condition of Goyal.

In response, the bench reviewed the medical reports and considered the severe physical and psychological distress Goyal faces, further exacerbated by the recent death of his wife. The court deemed it appropriate to extend his interim bail on medical grounds for an additional four weeks.

Justice Jamadar stated, “Having perused the medical reports and the situation in which the applicant finds himself, in the backdrop of the physical and psychological ailments, aggravated on account of the demise of his wife, I deem it appropriate to extend the interim bail on medical ground by a period of four weeks.”
