Seizure of oxygen concentrators from Khan Market: Delhi court declines to grant interim relief to businessman Navneet Kalra

A Delhi Court has reportedly refused to grant interim relief to businessman Navneet Kalra in the case filed in connection with the seizure of oxygen concentrators from Kalra's restaurants, including "Khan Chacha."

Kalra had moved a Saket Court seeking anticipatory bail in the case. As per an News report, Special Judge Sumit Dass has directed the Investigating Officer to file the reply to the application by tomorrow, when the case will be taken up next. 

In the meanwhile, there would be no interim stay on any coercive action that may be taken against Kalra, the Court is stated to have clarified. 

Public Prosecutor Atul Shrivastava opposed the pre-arrest bail application in court today, adding that since it was a case being probed by the Crime Branch, the Saket court was not the suitable court. 

Last week, oxygen concentrators were reportedly recovered from restaurants owned by Navneet Kalra, including 96 from "Khan Chacha". 

The police claimed that the imported concentrators were being sold in the black market amid the COVID-19 crisis. 

On Saturday, the police transferred the case to the Crime Branch. Kalra has been absconding, reports add. A lookout notice has also been reportedly issued.
