A Delhi court has permitted interim bail of two weeks to Amit Arora, the director of Buddy Retail Pvt Limited, implicated in a money laundering case related to the alleged excise scam. Special judge for ED and CBI matters, Kaveri Baweja, emphasized the necessity of Arora's presence to support his wife during her surgical procedure, in the order issued on June 6.

The case sees several high-profile figures in judicial custody, including Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, former deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, and BRS leader K Kavitha. Arora's advocate, Vikas Pahwa, highlighted that his client's mother-in-law, aged 72, resided in Mohali, while siblings were located in Bangalore and London, leaving no immediate family support. The judge acknowledged the inability of extended family to adequately replace Arora's role in his immediate family.

The relief was granted on a personal bond of Rs two lakh with a surety. Arora must remain within Delhi NCR unless related to his wife's medical needs. He must comply with court directives, including not tampering with evidence, not influencing witnesses, or engaging in criminal activities. Pahwa assured the court of Arora's previous compliance with bail conditions, citing no misuse of the relief during the last interim bail granted on similar grounds.
