HC reserves order on Sanjeev Chawla’s plea challenging remand

New Delhi, Feb 19 (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Wednesday reserved its order on the plea filed by cricket bookie Sanjeev Chawla challenging his 12-day remand granted to the Crime Branch.

A single judge bench of the high court presided by Justice Anu Malhotra after hearing detailed arguments of both the sides reserved the order for pronouncement on Thursday.

Arguing for Chawla, senior advocate Vikas Pahwa stated that the request of extradition sent by the Indian government clearly suggests that the investigation has attained finality and the accused’s presence is only required for the trial.

On the other hand, Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain appearing for the Ministry of Home Affairs said: “The centre piece of the assurance given to UK government that he will be kept in Tihar will not be violated.”

“He will be confronted and investigated in Tihar, and if he is to be confronted with anyone outside Delhi we will use video conferencing,” Jain said.

“If at all he has to be taken anywhere, we will seek court’s permission,” he added.
