Can’t join hands with a vengeful complainant like ED, says court as it discharges duo held in PMLA case

Read Time:38 Second

Stating that it “cannot join hands with a vengeful complainant like the ED” by continuing to keep the accused in custody, a special court on Wednesday discharged two promoters of Omkar Group from a money laundering case filed by the Central agency.

Discharging Babulal Varma and Kamalkishor Gupta, who have been in jail since January 2021, and making their interim release granted on August 8 absolute, the court noted that in the absence of a scheduled offence, continuing the case “will be nothing but futile work”.

The court said: “…this Court strongly feels that it cannot join hands with vengeful complainant like ED (Enforcement Directorate) to humiliate accused persons by continuing their judicial custody that too, in utter disregard to the recent law of the land.”
