The Delhi High Court Thursday issued notice to the CBI on a plea of arms dealer Suresh Nanda, father of BMW hit-and-run case convict Sanjeev Nanda, seeking permission to go abroad for three months for business purpose.
Justice V.P. Vaish sought response of the CBI by Jan 29, the next date of hearing. Nanda, son of former navy chief, the late Admiral S.M. Nanda, moved the high court seeking modification of a trial court order of Dec 21 last year which allowed him to travel abroad for only six days, from Dec 23 to 28.
Filing the petition, Nanda said he has to travel from Jan 2 to March 31 to Dubai, London, Europe and Thailand for business purpose. He also pleaded that on several occasions, he was granted permission to travel abroad and he never misused the liberty given to him.
“On Dec 15, 2013, a letter from M/S Buckrow Asset Management LLP informed the petitioner (Nanda) that business meetings and conferences are fixed between Dec 2 to March 31 in Dubai, London, Europe and Thailand. If petitioner would not attend the meetings, the company has threatened to terminate the consultancy agreement of the petitioner,” the petition said. Nanda has been accused in several cases.
