Nine properties including Noida, Greater Noida sealed: Amrapali tells SC

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court ordered the sealing of nine properties of the Amrapali group after its three directors, who are in police custody, said that the documents related to the group’s 46 firms were stored there.

A bench of Justices U U Lalit and D Y Chandrachud directed that after the sealing of these properties, its keys be handed over to the registrar of the apex court. The court’s order came a day after three directors of the group — Anil Kumar Sharma, Shiv Priya and Ajay Kumar — were ordered to be taken into police custody.

The court said that the company was playing “hide and seek” with the court and not complying with its orders of handing over all the documents. These directors told the bench that documents related to Amrapali’s 46 group companies were kept in seven locations at Noida and Greater Noida and two premises — Rajgir and Buxar districts in Bihar.

The three directors had moved an application before the court stating that they were willing to hand over all documents but the police was unaware about which one needed to be seized.
