New Delhi: AgustaWestland deal alleged middleman Christian Michel James on Thursday moved the Delhi High Court seeking interim bail in the CBI and ED case against him, on the grounds of the outbreak of COVID-19.

The plea filed through Advocate Aljo K Joseph stated that the petitioner is 59 years of age and ill. The age and a pre-existing bad state of health will make the applicant more susceptible to the infection than any other prisoner with a normal health condition.

Further, the presence within prisons of subjects who have tested positive for COVID-19 poses a threat to the applicant considering his existing health condition and age. In view of the present situation, it is necessary that the court may consider the plight of Christian Michel and persons similarly placed, the plea stated. (IANS)
