The Bombay High Court Tuesday rejected bail pleas filed by jailed banker Rana Kapoor’s wife Bindu Kapoor and their daughters Roshini and Radha Kapoor Khanna in a case of alleged fraud caused to

Yes Bank

Ltd (YBL).

Kapoor is the cofounder of YBL who was arrested in the said matter in March, 2020.

Justice Bharati Dangre, after hearing all the parties had posted the matter today for the pronouncement of the order. The court gave an oral in the said matter.

The Kapoors, in three identical but separate bail pleas, challenged a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court order that rejected their bail applications and remanded them to judicial custody.

The trio since then have been lodged at Byculla district jail in Mumbai.

As per the CBI, Rana Kapoor and his family members had allegedly received kickbacks of around Rs 600 crore for an investment of Rs 3,700 crore made by Yes Bank in DHFL’s debentures.

Counsels appearing for Bindu Kapoor and her two daughters argued that they have so far extended fullest cooperation to CBI and was not arrested during the investigation.

“On August 20, 2021, the trial court took cognizance of various non-bailable offences and summoned applicants to appear before it as an accused. The applicants immediately submitted to its jurisdiction by appearing personally on September 4, 2021, and moved a bail application in terms of Section 439 of CrPC,” argued counsel for the Bindu Kapoor.

However, special counsel Hiten Venegaonkar, appearing for the investigation agencies countered this argument and said that the CBI court had already considered all these submissions before rejecting the plea.

Senior Advocate Amit Desai appeared for Roshini Kapoor in the case, while Mahesh Jethmalani, senior advocate argued for Bindu Kapoor and Radha Kapoor Khanna in the case.

“The interest of the investigation agencies stand protected as the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has attached properties and bank accounts of the applicant to the tune of Rs 600 crore under various provisional attachment orders,” argued the petition filed by Radha Kapoor Khanna.

“Special Judge failed to consider that the applicant has been granted bail in the PMLA case arising out of the current FIR in the same facts and circumstances,” Khanna’s petition said.

The special court, while rejecting their bail petitions, had observed that the trio are involved in the wrongful loss of public money to the tune of Rs 4,000 crore, which belongs to the public at large, including bank depositors and shareholders.
