A chartered accountant who was detained by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with an investigation into a Rs 318 crore global depository receipts (GDRs) fraud was granted bail by the Supreme Court on Thursday.
A panel of Justices V Ramasubramanian and Pankaj Mithal noted that no final report had been submitted with the FIR and that the appellant’s extended detention might not be necessary.
The court stated, “Adequate restrictions (for bail) must be imposed in order to address the Enforcement Directorate’s concern that the appellant is a flight risk and may leave the country if released on bail.
