In what can be seen to be a major setback for SpiceJet promoter Ajay Singh, a sessions court in Delhi on March 30 refused to grant him anticipatory bail in a case of fraud involving a few lakh rupees.
The reason cited by the court in its detailed written order, made available in the public domain on March 31, was the gravity of the offence alleged against Singh.
Singh has already joined the police investigation as per the court's order passed earlier this month, a spokesperson of Spicejet 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."
