New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday sent in police custody three Directors of the Amrapali Group till they handed over all documents related to their 46 companies to forensic auditors. The court said that in case the three directors — Anil Kumar Sharma, Shiv Priya and Ajay Kumar — “failed to hand over the documents as ordered, they shall remain in police custody till such time the documents are handed over.”
A bench of Justice Arun Mishra and Justice Uday Umesh Lalit observed that there was blatant and deliberate violation and non-compliance of its directions to the construction company’s Directors to submit the said documents. The court also issued a contempt notice to the three, asking them to explain as to why they did not comply with the court’s earlier orders. It ordered that these three and other company Directors to surrender their passports. Nominee Directors will not be covered by this direction, the court clarified.
