Special judge DR Mahajan recently granted permission to Colonel Kulbir Singh, one of the suspects in the National Defence Academy (NDA) recruitment scam, to visit New Delhi and Gurgaon (Haryana) between November 15 and November 22.
Singh, along with five others, was arrested in July in connection with the scam. He was granted bail in September on the condition that he will not leave Pune without the court’s permission.
Singh, who wanted to go to Delhi and Gurgaon to register his flat at the Shalimar Residency, Sector 56, Gurgaon, had moved a plea in the court seeking permission to leave Pune.
Contesting Singh’s prayer, CBI’s lawyer Vivek Saxena argued that Singh was one of the main accused in the case and if he was allowed to go out of Pune, he may influence witnesses and hamper the investigations. Singh’s lawyer Sachin Patil promised that Singh will not misuse the liberty, if he was allowed to go to Delhi. The judge ruled in Singh’s favour and allowed him to go.
