NRI businessman C C Thampi on Wednesday (January 29) released on bail by the Delhi court in connection with a money laundering case related to Robert Vadra for acquisition of allegedly illegal assets abroad.
Special judge Arvind Kumar granted relief to Thampi on submitting a personal bond of ₹5 lakh with two sureties of like amount.
The case relates to allegations of money laundering in the purchase of a London-based property — located at 12, Bryanston Square — worth 1.9 million pounds, which is allegedly owned by Vadra.
On Tuesday, a special court in Delhi reserved its order on a bail plea filed by Thampi and sent him to judicial custody till February 7.
Thampi was arrested by the ED on January 18. He is stated to be ‘controlling’ Dubai-based company Sky Lite. In 2009, another co-accused Sanjay Bhandaris firm, Santech FZE, purchased a London asset from a private company which was acquired by Sky Lite.
