Promoters of Faridabad-based Gem International
Purshotam Dev Arya and Anil Madan had moved a petition against
the court`s order yesterday directing CBI to attach their
properties since they had failed to appear in the court
despite being declared proclaimed offenders.
Arya and Madan said in their petition that "their
counsel had the power of attorney and full instructions to
proceed with the matter and their absence was in no way
retarding the progress of the case."
The court had yesterday directed CBI to submit a
detailed list of movable and immovable properties of Arya,
Madan and another co-accused AKR Construction promoter A K
Dev and Arya are the promoters of Gem International, a
sub-contractor of Swiss Timing. The duo has further sub-let
the TSR contract to Hyderabad-based AKR Construction.
