New Delhi: The Delhi High Court Thursday castigated the Enforcement Directorate for non-availability of its counsel to argue on bail the plea of Karnataka Congress leader D K Shivakumar, arrested in a money laundering case, and said that the agency cannot play “hide and seek” with the court.

Justice Suresh Kait blasted the ED’s counsel who appeared in the matter and sought accommodation for 30 minutes on the ground that the law officer who would argue the case was busy in Rouse Avenue district court.

“You cannot play hide and seek with the court,” Justice Kait said, adding, “This is not acceptable. Court is not supposed to wait.”

The high court reserved its order on Shivakumar’s plea seeking bail and asked the ED’s counsel to file their written submissions by 12 noon of October 19.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.

  1. I would like to salute the entire LAWFUL wisdom of K. PARASARAN And his stubirn diginity in the history of judiciary in INDIA.
    May his insights lead Indian Judiciary fir a truthful India.

  2. Using political power & position, DKS has looted Kanakapura’s natural resources to make him rich. In the process several govt. Officials like, Tahsildars, AC’s, Forest dept.officials helped him, in return they got corruption money. Today, Ramanagar, & Kanakapura’s natural wealth granite had been fully excavated by these two brothers. They have encroached several ignorant owners lands by muscle power and police help. . But, GOD’s will, nobody can enjoy I’ll wealth and it has to return to nature. I think these two brother should stay permanently in prison for their karma. Attach all properties of their whole family to govt.
