Delhi High Court (Delhi High Court) has stayed the order of the Patiala House Court, in which he was directed by the Patiala House Court to appear physically on October 12 at 2 pm. During the hearing on Monday, the Delhi High Court, while giving relief to Rujira Banerjee, said that her lawyer will be present.
Rujira Banerjee had filed a petition in the High Court challenging the order of Delhi’s Patiala Court. Rujira challenged the order of the Patiala House Court in the High Court, claiming that he had never violated any rule. He had responded in a timely manner to the summons sent by the Enforcement Directorate, the agency’s probe into financial misappropriation of the Centre.
Rujira Banerjee had filed a petition in the High Court
Rujira Banerjee had said that if a woman is called outside her area for investigation, then preliminary investigation is required first. Abhishek’s wife has claimed that the ED has not done any preliminary investigation in this case. Keeping both these arguments in mind, Rujira Banerjee has challenged the order of Patiala House Court to appear in person in the High Court. Let us inform that Rujira Banerjee was summoned by the Central Investigation Agency Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the coal scam. She was summoned several times before this, but she did not appear. The investigating agency alleges that despite sending summons repeatedly, she is not appearing. In this case, the ED had approached the Patiala House Court. In view of this, the Patiala House Court had summoned Rujira to the court.
ED had sent summons on September 19, did not appear
Summons were sent on September 19, but Rujira said she did not appear for personal reasons. So ED filed a petition in Patiala House Court. At that time Rujira had appeared through video conferencing, but the court had directed her to appear physically on October 12. Let us tell you that on 6 September, Abhishek Banerjee had appeared in the ED office in Delhi. The ED questioned him for 9 hours. After that, on being summoned again, Abhishek Banerjee had moved the Delhi High Court. Abhishek Banerjee had challenged the summons sent to him in the case by the ED probing the coal scam in the Delhi High Court. In the petition, Abhishek Banerjee has demanded from the court that the summons sent by the Enforcement Directorate to him and his wife Rujila for questioning in Delhi be quashed, but the court refused to grant them relief. The ED had summoned him under Section 50 of the Anti-Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
