A special court on Saturday rejected bail applications of Yes Bank founder Rana Kapoor’s wife and two daughters in connection with the alleged fraud in the DHFL case. The court sent them to judicial custody till September 23.
Bindu Kapoor, Roshni Kapoor and Radha Kapoor were named as accused in the DHFL case but were not arrested during the probe.
After the CBI filed a supplementary chargesheet in the case, the three were summoned according to the procedure. They then filed bail applications.
The investigating agency sought time to file replies during which they were granted interim bail.
The CBI in its reply had opposed stating that if enlarged on bail, they may abscond from the country and influence witnesses. The central agency also said that they are ‘influential persons’ and probable witnesses are mostly employees of Yes Bank or companies linked to the accused or persons known to them. It had claimed that the three were directors of companies linked to the alleged fraud.
Lawyers Vijay Agarwal and Rahul Agarwal representing the three said that they have approached the Bombay High Court against the order.
Rana Kapoor was arrested last year on March 8 by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in another case related to alleged kickbacks received by him in lieu of loans given to infrastructure company, DHFL.
