Delhi HC allows INC leader Bhavya Bishnoi accused under Black Money Act to travel abroad for Post-Graduation


New Delhi Aug 4(ILNS): The High Court of Delhi today allowed an application to travel for Post-Graduation to the United States of America, subject to conditions imposed by the court, filed by Congress leader Bhavya Bishnoi, son of Kuldeep Bishnoi, MLA, Adampur, Haryana and Renuka Bishnoi, MLA, Hansi, Haryana accused under Black Money Act, 2015.

The Single-Judge bench comprised of Justice Rekha Palli was hearing a plea seeking permission to travel abroad for two years for post-graduation.

The conditions imposed by the court are that the petitioner will appear before any Office of the Indian Embassy once in eight weeks, will inform the respondents about his program, will not tamper evidence, or contact any person involved in the investigation.

The bench has also directed Bishnoi’s father to file an undertaking stating he will not leave the country as long as the Bhavya is abroad, besides the surety of his property AG-059 (Old No. FLG04), Phase-I, Ansal Plaza, Greater Noida, UP and five lakh rupees already present with the court, a further sum of one crore rupees has to be deposited and the petitioner will co-operate with the respondent authorities in all pending inquiries.

Advocate Vibhooti Malhotra vehemently opposed the application. Malhotra informed the court that sanction for prosecution of the petitioner and his father under Section 50 of Black Money Act, 2015 has been granted and the matter is listed for hearing on August 6, 2021, at the court of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Special Acts, Tis Hazari Court. Ms. Malhotra argued that if the petitioner is permitted to travel abroad, the proceedings initiated against him under Black Money Act may be rendered infructuous.

Advocate N.P Sahni appearing for Bhavya stated that the petitioner has deep roots in India and his entire family including his parents and siblings are residents of Delhi. Sahni further stated that the petitioner’s father is willing to give an undertaking that he will not leave the country as long as the petitioner is studying abroad.

The bench while allowing Bhavya to travel abroad for a period of 2 years to complete his Post Graduation disposed of the petition./ILNS/SR/GM/SV/SNG
