New Delhi: Arms dealer Suresh Nanda today approached the Delhi High Court seeking a direction for release of his passport seized by the government for allegedly involved in receiving a kickback in the Rs 1,150-crore Barak missile deal.

Nanda, son of formal Navy Chief S M Nanda, alleged in his petition that government was harassing him by not releasing the passport which had been in its custody for more than two and half years and his business all over the world was suffering.

Nanda's passport was seized in 2006 by CBI which is investigating the Barak missile deal. He was later allowed by a trial court to go abroad but restrained by Delhi High Court.

Nanda had then approached the Supreme Court which had on January 24 last year held the seizure of passport by the investigating agency as illegal as the law did not authorise it take such an action and CBI was directed to return the travel document.
