63 Moons Plea: Court Restrains DHFL Promoters From Leaving Country
Justice SJ Kathwalla said the Wadhawans will have to seek permission from the High Court if they wish to leave the country.
The plea filed by Jignesh Shah-promoted 63 Moons Technologies is seeking directions against DHFL and for the recovery of around Rs 200 crore that it said was due from the mortgage lender.
DHFL earlier told the court that the Wadhawans may have to travel abroad to raise funds. 63 Moons, however, raised apprehensions that the Wadhawans, if allowed to leave the country, may escape.
63 Moons, which had subscribed to the non-convertible debentures of DHFL, approached the court after the company failed to repay the money.
DHFL challenged the maintainability of the petition, arguing that trustees of the bond-holders already moved an application in the Pune bench of the Debt Recovery Tribunal for recovery of dues on behalf of the debenture holders, hence this plea could not be entertained.
The Enforcement Directorate is conducting a probe against DHFL over alleged financial irregularities.
The court has posted the plea for further hearing on Nov. 14.
