NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court has ordered an interim stay to the notice issued by the West Bengal police to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials during its probe against the coal mining scam case and the alleged involvement of Trinamool Congress leader Abhishek Banerjee.
Justice Rajnish Bhatnagar also issued notice to the West Bengal government and asked to file its response within four weeks. The respondents — state government, and police may file a rejoinder affidavit 2 weeks after that, the order dated December 7 stated.
"It is a settled proposition of law that the three conditions are required to be established for grant of any interim relief: a strong prima facie case, balance of convenience and irreparable injury to the petitioner. In view of the discussions hereinabove, I find that the present case is a fit case for grant of ad-interim relief." the Court order said, and posted the matter for further hearing on February 18, 2022.
