Centre’s response sought over Naresh Goyal’s plea

New Delhi, 9 July 2019 : The Delhi High Court on Tuesday refused to grant interim relief to Jet Airways promoter Naresh Goyal over his plea seeking to quash the Look Out Circular issued against him.

A single judge bench presided by Justice Suresh Kait sought a response from the Centre and posted the matter for hearing on August 23.

Senior advocate Maninder Singh, who appeared for Goyal, argued that the Look Out Circular was illegal as it was not issued under any law enacted by Parliament.

Additional Solicitor General Maninder Acharya told the court that serious frauds amounting to Rs 18,000 crore were being investigated against Goyal.

Citing the reasons for his visit abroad, Goyal’s counsel told that court that he needed to explore financial options for the airlines which is facing a serious financial crunch.

Singh said that Goyal was an NRI and a resident of Dubai and hence he needed to go back to the UAE before July 10. Else, his residential rights would be revoked.

Singh said that till the time he filed the petition in the court, there was no case against Goyal. But on July 6, when the matter came up for hearing, he received summons from SFIO to appear before it on July 10 to join the investigation.

Earlier on July 5, Justice Vibhu Bakhru recused himself from hearing the case.

On May 25, Goyal and his wife Anita Goyal were stopped from leaving the country by immigration authorities at Mumbai airport.

New Delhi, 8 Nov : Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu has been allowed by the government to accompany the Sikh ‘jatha’ that will travel to Darbar Sahib Gurudwara in Pakistan via the Kartarpur Corridor on November 9, sources said here on Thursday.

The Ministry of External Affairs has, however, denied Sidhu, a former state minister in Punjab, the permission to travel to Pakistan via Wagah. Pakistan had extended Sidhu the first invitation for the event and had even offered him a visa.

The ‘jatha’ will travel to Darbar Sahib Gurudwara, a holy shrine of the Sikh religious community in Pakistan, using the corridor which will be thrown open for the first time on November 9.

Sidhu had written to the External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar seeking permission to travel to the holy shrine via Attari-Wagah, which would require Pakistan visa. He wrote that if he didn’t “get response to his third letter seeking permission to visit Pakistan, then he will proceed as a devotee on an eligible visa”.
