The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) appealed against the bail granted to the duo in a case related to alleged irregularities in the Delhi Excise Policy of 2021-22.
The Delhi High Court issued notice to AAP communications in-charge Vijay Nair and businessman Abhishek Boinpally and sought their response.
Justice Yogesh Khanna, a single judge, sent notice to the two accused and set December 5, 2022, as the date for a second hearing.
Exceptional appointed authority MK Nagpal had allowed bail to the team on November 14.
Nair and Boinpally, on the other hand, were both taken into custody on the same day by the Directorate of Enforcement (ED).
On September 27, Vijay Nair, the former CEO of Only Much Louder, was taken into custody by the CBI for five days in connection with alleged irregularities in the Delhi Excise Policy case.
After Delhi Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena suggested that the CBI investigate the Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22, the First Information Report (FIR) was filed, putting Manish Sisodia, who was in charge of the excise department, in the crosshairs.
The Delhi government had then announced that it was ending the policy.
On Nair’s job, the FIR expressed that solid sources uncovered that he and three others were effectively associated with abnormalities in outlining and execution of extract strategy.
Boinpally is accused of lobbying for a group of liquor businessmen based in southern India, according to the allegations. According to the CBI, he transferred money to co-accused Nair through hawala channels as part of a conspiracy.
