Move trial court against look-out notice: SC to Vectra chief
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday asked NRI businessman and Vectra chief Ravinder Rishi to approach the trial court for "appropriate relief" on his plea to quash the look-out notice issued by the CBI for alleged irregularities in supply of Tatra trucks to BEML.
A bench of justices Altamas Kabir and J Chelameswar passed the order while dealing with Rishi`s petition challenging the issuance of look-out notice and also seeking permission to travel abroad for his medical treatment.
Senior counsel Mukul Rohatgi and Ranjit Kumar, appearing for Rishi, claimed despite and after registration of the FIR by the CBI for alleged irregularities in supply of the truck, the BEML on May 30 had issued fresh orders to the accused for supply of additional trucks.
The counsel also argued Rishi has been cooperating with investigating agencies for the past six months and has not been arrested so far, and accordingly, cannot be restrained from travelling abroad.
The bench, however, was not convinced with the arguments and directed Rishi to appear before the concerned trial court and seek appropriate relief.
Appearing for the CBI, Additional Solicitor General Siddharth Luthra opposed Rishi`s plea for permission to visit UK purportedly for treatment of his various medical ailment, saying he may not return.
The apex court had on August 22 brushed aside Rishi`s plea for expeditious hearing of the matter as, he said, he needed urgent medical attention abroad. The court, however, had asked as to why the NRI cannot be examined by Indian doctors.
