Delhi court rejects Supertech Chairman RK Arora’s plea for Bail Extension

A Delhi court has dismissed the plea filed by Supertech chairman and promoter RK Arora, seeking an extension of his interim bail by an additional 90 days on medical grounds, in a money laundering case.

Additional Sessions Judge Devender Kumar Jangala of Patiala House Courts denied Arora’s plea and directed the jail authorities to ensure that he receives the necessary medical treatment as prescribed by his doctors.

The court directed Arora to surrender before the jail authorities by 5 p.m. on May 13. The judge said that, based on the medical board’s report mandated by the high court, there was no compelling reason to extend Arora’s interim bail, particularly since no specific date for his alleged surgery had been set by any hospital, whether public or private.

The court said that Arora had already been granted interim bail since January 16 of this year. Moreover, it noted that the investigation had been completed, a prosecution complaint had been filed, and cognisance had been taken.

Consequently, the judge ruled that Arora could receive necessary medical treatment while remaining in custody, indicating that his existing bail was sufficient for addressing his health concerns within the confines of legal proceedings.
