A Delhi court has dismissed the anticipatory bail plea filed by SpiceJet promoter Ajay Singh in relation to a fraud case, Senior Advocate Vikas Pahwa representing the complainant told Moneycontrol.

A written order from the court to this effect is awaited still and is expected to be passed on March 31, Pahwa told Moneycontrol.

Singh has been appearing before the police for investigation in line with the court's March 9 direction, a SpiceJet spokesperson said. "Mr. Ajay Singh, as per the Hon’ble Court’s directive, has already joined the investigation and appeared before the authorities. Therefore, no warrant or bail is relevant since these were to ensure his attendance."

Singh had moved the court seeking anticipatory bail after non-bailable warrants were issued against him in January for failing to appear before the police for investigation. Earlier this month, the court had protected Singh from coercive action while directing him to cooperate and participate in the investigation.
