Navneet Kalra moves Delhi High Court for anticipatory bail in oxygen concentrator black marketing case

Businessman Navneet Kalra has moved the Delhi High Court seeking anticipatory bail in connection with the oxygen concentrator black marketing case being probed by the Delhi Police (Navneet Kalra v. State).
Kalra approached the High Court after he was denied relief by the trial court earlier today.
The anticipatory bail will be heard by Justice Subramonium Prasad at 7 pm today.
Earlier today, Additional Sessions Judge at Saket Court had refused anticipatory bail to Navneet Kalra on the ground that his custodial investigation was required to be carried out by Delhi Police to unearth the entire conspiracy.
The trial court opined that there was prima facie incriminating evidence on record against Navneet Kalra to the effect that contrary to the brochure, the concentrators being sold by him were not manufactured with “German collaboration” and were manufactured in China instead.
Considering the lab reports, the trial court also added that the average output in terms of Oxygen purity of two samples was found to be 32.7 % & 38.2 % and with the laboratory room air, the Oxygen concentration was found to be merely 20.8 %.
On May 7, the police busted oxygen concentrators black-marketing racket during a raid and recovered 105 concentrators from two upscale restaurants in the Khan Market area.
The two restaurants namely Khan Chacha and Town Hall are owned by Navneet Kalra, who is allegedly on run, while the manager and three staffers have been arrested so far.
Delhi Police has registered a case under various offences charging with cheating, disobedience to order promulgated by a public servant, criminal conspiracy and violating provisions of Essential Commodities Act, 1955 followed by seizing of oxygen Concentrators from restaurants in South Delhi.
