HC declines Chandraswamy's plea to travel abroad

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, May 12 (UNI) The Delhi High Court today turned down the petition by controversial godman Chandraswamy, seeking permission to travel abroad.

Justice R C Jain observed that Chandraswamy would have to come clean from the court of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) hearing a case against him under the Foreign Currency Regulation Act.

Mr Mannan, arguing for Chandraswamy, submitted that he would move the appropriate court at first instance to seek relief.

Additional Solicitor General Mehrotra, appearing for the Central Bureau of Investigation, vehemently opposed the petition expressing apprehension that once permitted to travel abroad Chandraswamy might flee for ever.

Justice R C Jain appeared inclined to consider the petitioner's plea but saw the case against Chandraswamy under FCRA too grave to overlook.

Therefore he asked Chandraswamy's counsel Mannan to approach the ACMM for appropriate relief to pave way for his travelling abroad.
