A SPECIAL CBI court here on Saturday granted interim bail to Yes Bank founder Rana Kapoor’s wife and daughter in a case involving private sector lender DHFL. Kapoor’s wife Bindu and daughter Radha were named as accused in the supplementary chargesheet filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation recently, but the duo was never arrested in the case. The court, after taking cognisance of the chargesheet, had summoned the accused, and the two appeared before court on Saturday.
They then moved bail applications through their legal team comprising Vijay Agarwal and Rahul Agarwal, and contended that their arrests were not required as the CBI had filed a chargesheet as well without arresting them during the probe. When the probe agency sought time to file a reply to the pleas, the duo prayed for interim bail, which was allowed by special judge S U Wadgaonkar.
