New Delhi: Real estate major Unitech Ltd top bosses, facing charges of alleged cheating, on Tuesday walked out of Tihar Jail after sending a night there.

Here's why they had to spend a night at Tihar Jail.

-Unitech Ltd Chairman Ramesh Chandra, Managing Directors Sanjay Chandra and Ajay Chandra and Director Minoti Bahri were sent to judicial custody following a drama during which they succeeded in getting interim bail for three days by a sessions court, hours after being taken into custody by a trial court.

-They had to spend a night at Tihar Jail as they had on Monday failed to get the release warrant on time from the court.

-The top officials of the company who had appeared in the magisterial court in pursuance to the Non Bailable Warrants against them were sent to judicial custody at around 2.30 PM.

-Though the accused officials had managed to secure interim bail from the sessions court , the bail order was passed at around 5.20 PM on Monday by the sessions judge and by the time sureties were prepared for the accused, duty magistrate Ankita Lal had left the court due to which the release warrants could not be prepared.
